We’ve all seen them but often ignore them: the Federal Labor Laws posters. All Federal businesses with employees are required to prominently post them, but few take notice because its design, or lack of design, is easily forgettable. In a bid to make these posters more eye-catching and help the posters do their job of informing workers of their state and federal rights, Kerning for a Cause has launched a competition to redesign the Federal Labor Laws poster. The contest is open to anyone in the U.S. workforce, but only one entry per person or one per team will be accepted. The overall winner will receive $100 and a selection of books from Architecture Lobby authors. The submission deadline is the end of the day on Labor Day, September 5, 2016.

Entrants receive $5 and a copy of Asymmetrical Labors; winner receives $100 and a selection of books from Architecture Lobby authors


Entries will be evaluated based on the following criteria, but do not necessarily need to meet all of them:

// Overall legibility

// Accessibility, or “openness”: Ideally, these posters could be printed by employers (or employees), and would not require purchasing the poster or use of professional or large-format printers. This could mean tiling smaller formats, such as 8.5 X 11 or 11 X17, using non-standard printing methods, etc.

// Aesthetic character
