Instead of being paralyzed by the fear and negativity of what this pandemic will mean for Grant Design Collaborative, weâ€™ve focused our time and energy on an inspiring way to lift community spirit and celebrate our healthcare workers and first responders. Collaborating with our printing partner, 360 Creative Solutions Group, we designed and produced a series of colorful, heartfelt lawn signs featuring simple messages; such as â€śHope. Heal. Together.â€ť and five others. The signs were installed at homes, businesses, local government facilities and hospitals in our firmâ€™s hometown of Canton, GA, as well as Marietta, GA and Decatur, GA.
Start Your Own Campaign
1. Create your own lawn signs inspired by our signs, or request the production-ready files from us atÂ firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ (all we ask in return is for participants to join in the spirit and share photos of the signs in your community that may also be shared on Grantâ€™s social media.) The standard yard sign size is 24×18 inches (you can produce 9 signs out of a 4×8 foot corrugated plastic sheet, and any local sign printer can produce standard lawn signs.)
2. Partner with a local printer or sign fabricator to produce the signs for easy distribution.
3. Based on contributions from the community and partners, determine how many signs you can create.
4. Distribute throughout the community where they will be appreciated. (Donâ€™t forget to get permission to post them, and please obey local sign ordinances.)
On Social Media
To join the movement and show support via social media, we’ve created jpeg files of each sign to post and share from our Facebook page â€“ Grant Design Collaborative. Tagging posts is also encouraged. Common tags include: #GrantDesign, #SignsofHope, #HopeHealTogether, #StrongCaringBrave, #StrongCapableEssential, #ListenTrustBelieve, #BelieveTrustEmbrace, and #CourageTrustPeace.
