Communications Design Intern
Creating graphics and branding assets for local Pittsburgh civil and social organization.
GRAPHIC DESIGN / BRANDING / ILLUSTRATION
InvolveMINT is a Pittsburgh civil and social organization that builds digital complementary currency systems in under-resourced communities to empower residents to affect positive change and enable local resilience. ChangeMakers (volunteers) earn TimeCredits which can then be spent or exchanged for basic needs realized from underutilized community resources.
My job was to create diagrammatic posters and infographics (usually complimentary to digital announcements and emails) and other branding assets to communicate the concept, logistics and purpose of involveMINT.
