Hampshire College students elected this poster for my class’s 2014 commencement ceremony. Its design is both celebratory and reflective, using nature and flight to evoke growth over the past four years and into the future.
The poster features a quote from James Baldwin, who taught at Hampshire College in 1984 and delivered Hampshire’s commencement address in 1985. The quote reads: Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
This graphic was used for Hampshire College commencement programs, postcards, and posters.
