Creative Brief

Winter is coming. The midterm elections are fast approaching, and that means it’s our chance to change our government. We all know the classic “I Voted” stickers we get on Election Day at the polls, and now we’re inviting artists & designers to create voting buttons that we can all wear proudly leading up to election day and encouraging everyone to vote.

Between now and Election day on November 6th, 2018, we’re seeking non-partisan button designs that encourage people to exercise their right to vote. Taking inspiration from the classic “I Voted” stickers, let’s get ahead of the game and let people know that you’ll be voting and encouraging everyone you know to vote. And for the first time, we’ll be producing and selling all submitted designs as actual buttons!!

Proceeds support HeadCount, a non-partisan organization that works with musicians to promote participation in democracy.

Your Design Should:

  • Encourage people to vote
  • Be nonpartisan
  • Optional: use a slogan like:
    • I’m Voting
    • Fired Up, Ready to Vote
    • GO VOTE
    • VOTE 
    • Vote, Please 
    • Don’t Boo, Vote
  • Be a square, RGB image at 1035 by 1035 pixels that is a JPG or PNG
  • Fill the entire square canvas but content should crop to a circle.
  • Keep a safe area of at least 100 pixels on all sides (don’t place text too close to the edge)

This year we’re taking extra time to appreciate all of the parent artists who contribute to CAN! We know from experience that raising children takes a lot of work, just like most things in this world that are truly worth the effort, and those of us who make art and save the world for a living are no exception. Starting with some of our CAN moms for Mother’s Day on May 12th, here's a little wisdom from 'those who know best' on how they juggle creativity and parenting. Some of these moms designed the gifts in our new Mother's Day 2019 Gift Guide, so check that out! And be sure to look for our Father’s Day feature next month featuring some of our CAN dads.

Our Green New Deal campaign premiered on March 14, 2019 in Washington D.C., at Bold V. Old, a daylong convening where speakers including Stacey Abrams, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris discussed bold ideas for our biggest problems, including the Green New Deal. On March 16 In Oakland, CA, Creative Action Network joined artists and activists at the Green New Deal Create-A-Thon, where youth artists from the Sunrise Movement and others worked on new designs for the collection. Youth activist Rio says that after seeing videos of Greta Thunberg leading student climate strikes in Europe, “me and my sister were empowered to make some sort of difference.” Rio and his sister Maddy recently rose to internet stardom when their student group confronted Senator Feinstein about the Green New Deal a few weeks ago. Maddy says she is now “trying to make my voice be more heard, go to marches, and more creative stuff, definitely!”
