By motivating eligible citizens to register and turn out on election day, Get Out the Vote fulfills an ongoing AIGA objective of demonstrating the value of design to the public, public officials and business by providing a clear call to action for an activity that is important to everyone. TheKITCHEN [K] exhibit will feature a curated selection of these posters.

Design Ignites Change encourages college students, using design thinking practices, to improve the lives of individuals and communities. Created in 2009 as a result of a partnership between Adobe Foundation and Worldstudio Foundation, Design Ignites Change has engaged thousands of students from more than 15 high schools and 48 colleges or universities from around the world.
Locally, Design Ignites Change has connected with Juniors in the graphic design program at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. The class, taught jointly by John Carmody, Bob Lasater and Sam Shelton, has focused on projects such as pedestrian safety, reducing traffic congestion by encouraging better commuting habits, and economic stimulus through tourism that leverages a community’s natural resources.
“VOTE!” will feature the students most recent Design Ignites Change projects: Two that target specific ethnicities to encourage them to vote and one that hopes to influence equal representation for DC residents in Congress.
