Taste of the Lower East Side Banners

2015 marked the 15th year of Taste of the Lower East Side, a tasting event that benefits the important community programming of Grand St. Settlement in the Lower East Side and Bushwick. Grand St. Settlement used this milestone anniversary to recognize 15 members of their community who have contributed tremendously to the event's success, as well as other advocates, educators, and leaders within the Grand St. family. With the McMillianCo. team, I brainstormed and created illustrations to represent each unique honoree, which were used in freestanding banners we designed. The banners told each recipient's story, and were displayed prominently at the entrance of the event. Learning about these 15 remarkable individuals was nothing short of inspiring, and it was an honor to work on this project.
