TEDCity2.0: The poster, remixed

Posted by:

TEDCity2.0-poster-2“Dream me. Build me. Make me real.” This is the driving philosophy behind TEDCity2.0, happening Friday, Sept. 20. To visually represent the event, curators Courtney Martin and John Cary turned to the design firm Kiss Me I’m Polish, who created a set of posters keyed into the idea of collective creation.

See, these posters are customizable, made from a kit of parts that anyone can remix and remake. While TEDCity2.0 takes place in New York City, a web of self-organized TEDxCity2.0 events will be held across the globe over the same weekend. Kiss Me I’m Polish encouraged TEDx organizers to take the poster design and run with it, riffing on the imagery to reflect the flavor of their own city. They released a design guide for TEDx organizers with guidelines for creating a logo, a color palette, a library of shapes and detailed instructions for how to make images from their city a part of the collage. Check out more of these remixed posters on the TEDx Blog.
