Saili Ao Malo Trilogy - Part 2
Ta'amu's Playbook: Notes from a Seattle Samoan Football Player - APIA PICTURES
Sponsored by Nike, there was a huge emphasis on integrating athleticism into our academic and professional careers. Pasifik Standard Time is a Pre-conquest Indigenous Cultures and its Aftermath (PICA) and American Ethnic Studies (AES) student co-sponsored event focusing on Pacific Islander Americans in sports, showcasing the film "Alameda Ta'amu's Playbook." This film told the story of Alameda who grew up in the south end of Seattle, attended UW, and went on to play for the NFL. Alameda, as well as the other Nike panelist, shared inspiring stories. They talked about being a minority, whether that may be in their ethnicity or gender, and how that influenced the choices that they made and ultimately got them to where they are today.
Designing the poster, I decided to base it off the actual wave chart for the day of the event, November 9, 2019, shading the time frame 1:00pm to 3:00pm darker so the poster can be a visual means of telling time. Since the wave chart is essentially a time-based occurrence, it is suitable for the title and theme "Pasifik Standard Time." Alameda Ta'amu, as a Husky Football player, was then added as a final touch, adding athleticism to the poster.
