Art Patch Project

In June 2004, King County Public Health approached five design students at Cornish College of the Arts to work create a campaign counteracting tobacco funding for the arts. Article can be read at Cornish news.

To begin working on the project, we researched the tobacco industry, the art community and Lucky Strike’s presence in Seattle. The research helped us to understand the problem of tobacco in the art community and the need for a solution. It enabled us to develop a campaign objective and a target audience. Then we worked on brainstorming ideas on how to deliver our objectives to the community.

The Patch Project concept was created to raise awareness about the dangers of tobacco funding for the arts and to encourage and eventually create alternate funds.
