Below is my full interview with TED Arts + Design as part of their feature on AIGA’s Get Out The Vote initiative.
How would you describe your style as a designer?
I always strive for clarity, but beyond that, I focus on being versatile and adapting to the needs of the client or project rather than incorporating any particular personal style. Recently, the color palette associated with US politics has really expanded beyond normal red, white and blue which I’m sure influenced my color choices. 

What was the inspiration for your GOTV design? 
Coretta Scott King said “Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every generation.” I see democracy the same way – we all have a responsibility in keeping it afloat. Democracies are complicated and fragile, and history shows that they absolutely can fall apart – or in this case, drown. We are no exception.

Were there particular designs and/or images and/or styles that influenced your poster? If so, what were they?
There’s no particular piece of inspiration, but I’m inspired by the work of artists who have incorporated the Statue of Liberty and Lady Justice (holding the scales) to represent our country’s strengths as well as threats we face. Art has always been a huge part of political expression and free speech, and I’m glad designers like Bonnie Siegler are encouraging that tradition.

Did you have a particular audience that you wanted to target with this poster, and if so, who is that audience?
With a topic this critical, I wanted to cast a wide net. Voting correlates to the survival of our democracy and, as the pandemic demonstrates, our citizens.

Voter turnout is quite low in the US, compared to many other countries. If you were in charge, what would you do to improve voter turnout in America?
I think US voter turnout is low for a number of reasons, but I’m encouraged by the early turnout numbers. I think Americans are realizing our democracy is much more vulnerable to external and internal threats than we’d like to believe. On a personal level, we need to be on alert for voter suppression and have absolutely zero tolerance for it.
