AIGA AZ:Design for Democracy-Reimagining The Audience of Get Out the Vote

Campaign creative, as elegant and well designed as it may be, will fail if it does not appeal to the people that it seeks to address. How then can we put GOtV campaigns on the right track from the get-go? The answer, in short, is that good creative starts with an understanding of the target audience.

This webinar sets to achieve two goals:

  • To equip participants with theoretical tools that will help them conceptualize the audience of their planned political campaigns.
  • To offer participants understandings regarding what types of messages and content will appeal to those different audiences.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to identify four Political Character Types of citizens and predict what visual and rhetoric content will likely appeal to each of these Political Character Types.

We are asking you to pay what you can for your ticket. Net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the League of Women Voters of Metro-Phoenix. They work to educate and engage voters by providing unbiased non-partisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.

This webinar will use Zoom, we will be sending the link to access and password to the Zoom Meeting 24 hours prior to the event. If you register the day of the event, you will receive the link no later than 1 hour before the event.
