Want to design a fun and informative sign for the Common, roughly equivalent to this one at Mary Cummings Park on Blanchard Road?
Here’s some raw material for such a project (below). More could be added or subtracted. The sign does not have to resemble the Mary Cummings sign, nor does it have to follow the numbered format used by Burlington Retro here. The sign could be serious or cartoonish and kid-friendly. You decide.
If you’re a Burlington-based graphic design student, this is a chance to build your portfolio. If you’re a pro, here’s a chance for free publicity. Take the elements below and create an appealing design. The Historical Commission will choose a design and present it to Board of Selectmen for approval. You’ll be credited on the sign as the graphic designer.
By the way, the head shots of Marshall Simonds and James Walker are available as stand-alone images, so they don’t have to be embedded as seen below. Submit designs or questions to BurlingtonRetro@gmail.com, or call 781-718-9872.
