Co- Making Diverse Economies event poster

Identity for a series of events exploring ways in which we engage with the city with a focus on working together. This first event specifically focuses on the economy: co-production, labours of care, volunteering, social enterprise, gifts, bartering, salvaging and cooperatives.

The poster uses archive imagery depicting the Portland Works, one of the first places in Sheffield to make stainless steel cutlery and the building in which the event took place.

The Co- series has been developed by artist Charlotte Morgan and designer Julia Udall through a common interest in the points at which art and architecture practices intersect. The events aim to create a space in which to share practice, projects and ideas within a small group including specialists and nonspecialists.
