“Make The World Not So Sad” Poster Design Exhibition

Design a poster to raise awareness of mental wellness and what we can do to make the world not so sad.

We invite you to design a poster that will either lift the viewer’s spirits (inspirational), or bring awareness to mental health issues (educational), or both in one! All posters will be exhibited for a joyful evening to promote mental wellness and good feels. New, emerging, and established designers are invited to apply!
