I was thrilled to work with Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR) for their 20th Anniversario event in 2018. As a Latina who cares deeply about reproductive health and rights, this project was very personal for me. I was inspired to incorporate a traditional celebratory symbol, papel picado. Papel picado is a Mexican folk art that is created by cutting elaborate designs into sheets of tissue paper to hang as banners. I initially created the design using hand-lettering and illustration on paper, then translated the concept into a digital space. This was used on invitations for their 20th Anniversary Fundraiser and was displayed throughout their event at the Denver Nature and Science Museum. I also used it to design event programming for the evening and tote bags for guests of the event.
