To celebrate AIGA’s Centennial, AIGA Raleigh invited designers to create posters inspired by events that took place in the Triangle region over the past ten decades. Participating designers were asked to select a decade of interest and to submit work focused on an event occurring in that decade and designed in a style representative of the decade they chose.
From among the submitted designs, ten works have been selected and printed to be displayed as part of this exhibition that will travel within the Triangle region from September 2014 until early January 2015. All locations are open to the public.
