Citizens for Optimism

Citizens for Optimism is a collaboration among 17 up and coming designers who strive to use their unique styles to inspire happiness through design. On our mission to promote optimism we asked New Yorkers what words or feelings they associated with optimism. We narrowed down a long list to seventeen words and gave each designer one word along with a simple brief, design a type dominant poster that promoted optimism. The outcome, nothing less than amazing work.

The team has a new show going up in Brooklyn on Friday at Brooklyn Collective, from 6PM-9PM. And you can also purchase any of the prints you see below (plus a few more) in thier Etsy shop right here.
