When I became AIGA–UNO’s faculty advisor in fall 2019, I created a small batch of handbills to publicize a welcome event. Bills were created to advertise the initial member meeting and welcome new members to the student group. Bills were placed throughout the School of the Arts building and distributed during classes.
The handbill concept was based on the singular defining the many. Individual letterforms are created with a single, continuous line. Letterforms then overlap and gather in proximity. Color is used to distinguish the linguistic differences and visually encode members and non-members. AIGA members are one color and collectively gathered, while UNO students are a separate color on the edges. Two distinct groups merging in support of communication.
