Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants

Giving Back / Graphic Design

The Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants was created by the Vancouver Foundation in partnership with the Carnegie Community Centre. The programs purpose is to provide downtown eastside emerging artists with small grants to support and showcase their work.


I worked with DTES this past year (2018) to create a marketing campaign for their May – June Emerge Festival. This project required a variety of print and online materials to be designed in order to promote the festival.  Deliverables included posters, postcards, bus shelter advertising, a booklet program, as well as digital and social media banners.


The artwork featured on the campaign collateral is provided by: Larissa Healey – Gurl23. View her work on Instagram here!


DTES is also one of my Giving Back organizations for 2018. I donated 75% of the design and campaign work to the organization.
