The challenge was

Create Affirming Art that Uplifts

Say it loud and proud!

A declaration of truth or empowering belief, affirmations assert powerful messages into the universe. Today is a good day. You are brave, strong, and fearless. You have everything you need to succeed. By saying, thinking, or repeating these ideas, some believe you manifest them as truths in your own reality.

We’re positive you’ll feel empowered by this affirmation-oriented design challenge. Make art featuring phrases that uplift, delight, and champion the audience. What message of hope do you wish to share with the viewer? From living in the moment to believing you’re enough, create designs that speak positive words of empowerment. We challenge you to thoughtfully pair typography and design for the betterment of others.
