This was a fun project. I worked with a group of about six youth to create eight banners, which were placed at the Government Wharf. Thanks for this project go to Desiree Lawson and Cindy Neilson. The banners were made using spray paint and stencils. I sketched out and cut out a large number of cardboard stencils, using traditional design elements (ovoid, U-form, and S-form). The students then brainstormed words that reflect the values behind their Gwilas (traditional laws). The colours were chosen by the students to evoke these values, as well as to be festive and joyous.
