From almost 800 global entries, the Compost Council Research and Education Foundation has announced the winning poster for Compost Awareness Week 2019: 5-11 May.
The winner’s name is Evan Clark, originally from Michigan and now living in LA. He’s an illustrator and designer. Here’s how he described his idea behind his design:
“I feel very strongly about the role art and design has in promoting awareness of climate change and sustainability practices. I believe composting is a great way to feel more connected to the food and products we consume and the mechanisms by which they come and go. For my poster design, I wanted to create a small world of imagery that was bold and bright in evoking the positive ideas we associate with composting and a healthy environment. A lot of the discussion around climate change presently is very dire, but I think it is still important to reinforce our commitment to addressing it with positive imagery. Most important of all, though, was the central message: Cool the Climate – Compost! I hope my poster can help those wanting to participate in combating climate change realize the helpful role composting can play.”
