This banner has a proud place outside our classroom and is a regular fixture when we go traveling to promote Family & Community Medicine at Tulane University.
I’d designed this initially for use in our department’s booth at the 2011 Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians conference.
The green-to-blue color scheme was selected to conjure thoughts of Tulane’s color (green) and water (blue) in honor of their mascot (the Green Wave).
These hues and the overall imagery is intended to give a 70’s vibe to the 36×60-inch banner.
Next time I’ll consider cutting off the chain of islands in the bottom right of the state. As depicted here, they look like a peninsula or long island—and kinda phallic.
