It’s kinda thrilling to see your work really, really big. And for a critical cause — the health of Puget Sound. This banner at Seattle’s Colman ferry dock is 5 ft. by 33 ft!
I recently revamped an illustrative public awareness campaign I originally created for Kitsap County to promote their water pollution hotline. Funded by the Washington State Dept. of Ecology, the original illustration already has had a useful life — adapted for water pollution awareness advertising by government organizations throughout the region, including City of Bellingham, Port Angeles and Bremerton.
Now, for a Puget Sound Starts Here campaign, the illustration is on buses and ferries from Bellingham to Olympia and west to Clallam County, plus on social media and Pandora ads. The illustration was customized for each required proportion for maximum readability and impact. The PSSH messages are simple and direct: Fix Car Leaks; Use Compost Not Chemicals; Pick Up Pet Waste; No Oil Paint Suds. So do your part! With millions of us living on the edge of a sensitive Puget Sound, we all have an impact on water quality and salmon habitat. Let’s keep only rain going down the drain.
