2019 Savageau Award Winner
Local Actions, National Outcomes was 2019 Savageau Award winner Adam Flint Taylor’s thesis project—the final installation showing two years worth of research and creative practice aimed at understanding the issues with voting in the United States. This work explored how states (and sometimes county municipalities) created chaos for US voting because states have the right to plan and execute their own ballot design, gerrymandering, and voter identification laws. In order to illuminate these problems, this project used simple information design and physical interaction to transport visitors mentally and physically.
Adam worked as a designer at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, the Crocker Art Museum and Boulder Associates Architects. Taylor also earned his undergraduate degree in design from UC Davis. Adam is now an Assistant Professor in Graphic Design at Southern Utah University’s College of Performing and Visual Arts.
