Camp Sharon and Karen collateral

Today, second-year  MFA Design for Social Innovation  student Zach Narva was using the Visible Futures Lab's  Roland  UV Printer and Vinyl Printer/Cutter to print collateral for his thesis project,  Camp Sharon and Karen.  This event is for parents and families of trans and gender-non-conforming people that offers them space to process their own experience of their children's transition in search of new ways to demonstrate support.

Working with organizations like PFLAG NYC (now Parents and Families of LGBTQIA+ People) and the Jewish Community Center of NYC, Zach reframed his program as a camp to increase the accessibility and approachability of the program, when "workshops" or "conventions" may seem too formalized or closed-off.

After experimenting with UV printing directly to fabric, Zach is printing on heat transfer sheeting with the vinyl cutter to create tote bags and tee-shirts, and on card stock with the UV printer.

The card stock will become the covers to a handbook offering a glossary of terms and strategies for conversing about contemporary LGBTQIA+ issues.
