Create a Canada Day Herman Miller Picnic Poster

The Canada Day Herman Miller Picnic Poster Student Competition is an opportunity for students to celebrate what it means to be Canadian while exploring the transformative power of poster design. In the same way that Herman Miller design leader Steve Frykholm captured the visual essence of the annual picnic at Herman Miller, this student poster competition is about moving your audience through design.
