Crowdsourcing Mornings: The National Park Poster Project


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

The National Park Poster Project combines a love of photography and the National Parks with the classic poster designs created during the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s and 40s.  Rob Decker has been creating iconic posters of America’s National Parks from original photographs taken over the last 35 years — and then transforming them through a digital process into graphic art. The result is a collection of original artwork reminiscent of the stylistic posters from the WPA-era.

Our national parks tell the story of America, encompassing its amazing landscapes, vibrant cultures, and rich history. And the National Park Poster Project helps to tell our personal histories as well — road trips, family vacations, weddings, reunions — important memories that remind us of our own experiences enjoying the often fascinating and always awe-inspiring beauty of our National Parks.  As part of the campaign, he is inviting all of you to celebrate your favorite National Park experiences by sharing your photos with the hashtag #ShareYourPark…and they’ll share their favorites throughout the campaign.  So, his hope is that you will become a partner in this historic endeavor as we approach the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016.
