Maine Type Lab, First Friday Vote Button Booth Provoke the Vote
Maine Type Lab members designed a series of buttons for October First Friday at Maine College of Art as part of the “Provoke the Vote” event. The buttons were handed out to the public and passersby were encouraged to customize their buttons with their political beliefs. Students created over 50+ designs and distributed nearly 500 buttons to the public, for free.
Maine Type Lab received support from Public Engagement, who purchased the button supplies and invited us to participate.
Participants: Cassondra Amicone, Kaitlin Callender, Trisha Cobb, Klarizza Cruz, Molly Feole, Sarah Mohammadi, Annie Mora, Rangeley Morton, Sheyenne Rivers
