Collingwood Neighbourhood House is promoting the well-being of the Collingwood community by providing leadership and working collaboratively with individuals, families, agencies and other groups to develop and support inclusive, innovative, sustainable initiatives and services that respond to the community’s social, educational, economic, health, cultural and recreational needs. A place to belong, a place to grow. 
Challenge
 In a team of three, create design and layout for poster, flyer and banner for the community annual festival. Keep festival mascot, the BC salmon riding a Penny farthing. The poster must include illustration, required information and a sponsor section.
Goals 
Portray a sense of community and kindness with the illustration.  Have a diverse crowd of people enjoying various activities and hobbies. Make it clear it is a Vancouver event with references to the city.
