It’s July in Jacksonville and we’re smack dab in the middle of Summer. Hope you’re all enjoying the ninety-degree temperatures and regularly scheduled thunderstorms! But for all of our good-natured griping about the Florida heat, there is one major reason to celebrate the season.
AIGA Jacksonville is gearing up for it’s 5th Annual Always Summer Poster Show + Mix Tape event in September!
Sure, it’s a few months away, but now is the time to be listening for that perfect summer song to turn into a poster. What do you jam to on the way to the beach? What is that number one hit that just won’t stay out of your head? What song will you look back on to sum up your Summer of 2013?
Keep an ear out for that inspiration, and an eye out for further developments on this event.
Last year boasted record numbers for attendance and participation, where almost 200 people came out to CoRK to see the show. We enjoyed amazing food courtesy of Conscious Eats from our Gold Level sponsor, Character Counts, and beautiful poster prints from our Silver Level sponsor, DXM Marketing Group. They’ll be helping us print the posters again this year at an extraordinary discounted price. Attendees will vote on their favorite poster, and three lucky winners will walk away with a prize. All while our DJ creates a live mix tape of your poster songs!
Check out more photos from the event on our Flickr page.
So stay tuned for our call-for-artists, and mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28th.
It’s Always Summer in Jacksonville, so be ready to bring the heat!
