2019 Winning Design
Meet the ICAW 2019 Poster Contest Winner
The ICAW Committee of the Compost Council Research & Education Foundation, is pleased to announce the winning design for ICAW 2019. Chosen from hundreds of entries sent in from throughout the world, formerly from Michigan and now an LA-based illustrator and designer, Evan Clark is this year’s ICAW Poster Contest winner. Using his artistic talents, Evan cleverly used a series of illustrations to highlight the many benefits of compost. As you can see from his bio “photo”, he lives and breathes his work - much like his attitude towards environmental issues.
As Evan explained when asked why he entered the contest, “I feel very strongly about the role art and design has in promoting awareness of climate change and sustainability practices. I believe composting is a great way to feel more connected to the food and products we consume and the mechanisms by which they come and go. For my poster design, I wanted to create a small world of imagery that was bold and bright in evoking the positive ideas we associate with composting and a healthy environment. A lot of the discussion around climate change presently is very dire, but I think it is still important to reinforce our commitment to addressing it with positive imagery. Most important of all, though, was the central message: Cool the Climate - Compost! I hope my poster can help those wanting to participate in combating climate change realize the helpful role composting can play.”
