This year’s poster design revealed!


Thanks to our friends at WORKagencies for making this beauty happen! If you don’t know about them, WORKagencies is a talented brother/sister design team from Lafayette who do it all (Web design, logos, CD packaging, etc.) with a style that’s fun, hip and celebrates South Louisiana. Be on the lookout for their New Orleans Earth Day Festival poster all across the city. And at the festival, be sure to check out the booth for their side project: Parish Ink.
