It’s that time of the season for powwows, specifically the 15th Annual Brown University Spring Thaw Powwow! I wanted to go in a new approach in creating the annual poster, and I was given creative direction to achieve the proper and consistent look that many have grown accustomed to. I hand drew the central figure which is a Woman’s Traditional Dancer, and input on the poster that you can see in the gallery. I also added some texture into the image using a variety of techniques to create the final outcome. I’m very pleased and the Native Americans at Brown are also happy with the finished design.
I was delighted to hear from the Native Americas at Brown (NAB) to conceive and design for their annual powwow, I was given free reign to create eye-catching aesthetics and promote the unity of the Native American communities and New England specifically Providence, RI. This year, I wanted to use different dancers compared to the Fancy Shawl Dancer from last year, so I input a Jingle Dancer and a Grass Dancer, which came out better than expected. I continued to utilize previous years’ design elements to create this year’s design.
I’m happy with the finished product, and I know NAB is too.
