Project Description

Guild, the design club at Louisiana Tech, is putting on a carving contest for students, specifically art and architecture students at Louisiana Tech. The contest will be judged by an design professor, an architecture professor, and a mystery judge. The top three will receive trophies and prizes.

For this event, I wanted to create a poster that would generate interest. I decided to do something I've been wanting to try for a while so I combined screen printing and laser cutting. Laser cutting the information plays on the fact that it is a pumpkin carving contest. The face is part of the CSA collection.

Production Lesson(s)

I learned that I love combining processes such as laser cutting and screen printing. The balance of new technology (laser cutter) and a traditional medium (screen printing) is a powerful juxtaposition.”
