Colours For Conservation art show and competition: posters by OCAD students at Patagonia in December

Patagonia Toronto has teamed up with more than 70 first year design students from OCAD to raise awareness about at-risk landscapes and conservation efforts in Ontario.

The images will be on display throughout December  at Patagonia, with a launch event on Wednesday, December 5, 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The students designed posters highlighting specific environmental organizations and the areas that they serve. For example, Willard Chou's bike-friendly poster for Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (above) and Michelle Wong's bikey and fruity poster for Not Far From the Tree, (below).

The posters will be on display starting this Wednesday, December 5 at 5 p.m. and continuing throughout December. And you are invited to drop by and vote on your favourite: the winning designer will receive a $1,000 grant for the organization of their choice and a new winter coat.

Viewing: December 5 through December 31

    Your ‘Not Far From The Tree’ poster is top stuff. It’s busy, but at the same time is makes great use of a minimalistic design.
