Calling all artists & designers
The Miller Library needs a poster design for the 2015 10th anniversary Garden Lovers’ Book Sale.
We seek your donation of creative talents for a new design for the 11 x 17 poster and 5 x 8 postcard advertising the 2015 Garden Lovers’ Book Sale. The successful design will have a plant or garden theme and eye catching appeal. The poster must include the specific details below about the date and location, plus the UW Botanic Garden logo. We will accept submissions through December 29th. Send a message to Tracy at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The creator of the selected design will receive two tickets to the book sale preview party.
