Create! Don’t Hate exhibition is result of the mentoring program for high schools in the region of Baltimore this past Fall 2009. This program was a partnership program of AIGA Baltimore and Worldstudio. Our goal was to connect graphic designers with high school students from Patapsco and Patterson High School interested in visual arts and have them create slogans/posters that later on could become billboards throughout the city. This was a great experience for students that wanted to enter the field of Illustration or Graphic Design in the future.

The program lasted four weeks, students and mentors met once a week. The billboards are based on a variety of topics such as: stop crime, domestic violence, love your city, stop vandalism in the streets, don’t trash your city, and much more.

Mentors showcasing on the exhibition:
Dani Bradford
