Artisans of the SC Cotton Trail


The Artisans of the SC Cotton Trail is an organization for artists and craftsmen who reside in a particular part of South Carolina. They exhibit their work throughout the year at various events, such as the Jazz Festival in Cheraw, SC.


The president of this organization asked me to design a poster that would provide viewers with information as well as incorporate a photograph taken by the ASCCT Featured Artist. Believing the poster could be a souvenir for the general public she wanted the design to be conceptually interesting as well.

Upon viewing the image I began to brainstorm about pollination. As an artist, you want each piece to create new seeds that will grow, while the organization would want to facilitate that process by surrounding individuals with other creative professionals and supporters. This train of thought lead to the poster design.
