Grand Canyon Centennial Posters

Grand Canyon National Park is celebrating a century. 


It was an honor to create a series of eight posters for display throughout the park, the state of Arizona, and on social media. Each design is a love letter to my favorite place in the world.


From January through April of 2018, I worked as a full-time volunteer with Grand Canyon National Park's Creative Media Department to take this project from a sketched-out proposal to a completed series. I refined the proposed themes and developed the design, then created each poster entirely by hand. Mediums include ink, gouache, and watercolor. I also created a social media campaign for Grand Canyon's Instagram. Learn more about the process of making these posters on Claire's Blog.

To help cover costs during my four months of full time volunteering, I created a Patreon account for people to give monthly donations in exchange for exclusive prints, stickers, and image downloads. Patrons continue to provide crucial support for my illustration projects.
