Despite the vast offerings of LGBTAmericans to the applied arts world, so many continue to stereotype the careers of this unique subculture. Now is the time to step-up and show Metro Detroit all that local LGBT Americans have contributed to the applied arts world. Welcome to 'Beyond the Bar,’ Detroit's First ever LGBT design showcase.
For this showcase, Metro Detroit's LGBT designers/illustrators are being called to submit their favorite pieces. Maybe it's that awesome website you made at work, or maybe it's the logo you created for your neighbors cupcake shop - whatever the work - take this opportunity to show the local area your contribution to the design field.
Chosen pieces will then be showcased at an opening reception party, during Ferndale Pride Week, 2012.
Please email a PDF (lastName_FirstName.PDF) of your chosen design to aharvilla@detroit.AIGA.org, by May 18th, 2012. You must include your full name, email address and phone number within the email submission. After each piece is reviewed, chosen designers will be contacted with installation steps.
Both Professionals and students are encouraged to submit. Submissions do not need to have been previously published, but must be applicable to the professional and applied arts world.
