Jelly London enlists leading illustrators to urge young voters to #TurnUp
London illustration agency Jelly have partnered with #TurnUp to invite artists from all backgrounds and disciplines to get involved with a creative brief that aims to encourage young people to vote ahead of the snap election.
In previous years, Bite the Ballot (the team behind Turn Up) have created successful campaigns to increase younger voter turnout in the run up to general elections as well as the referendum. They have partnered with the likes of Twitter, Facebook, Starbucks, Unilad, Hope Not Hate, Tinder, Uber and Vivienne Westwood, and achieved over 3 million new voter sign-ups – but with the snap general election just around the corner, there’s not much time.
Inspired by the power of the vote and the immediacy of the election, Jelly London teamed up with Bite the Ballot to generate a creative brief inviting artists, directors, agencies, creatives, musicians, celebrities and more to help spread the campaign’s message “turn up” on as many platforms as possible.
Here are a selection of our favourite submissions so far:
How to get involved
If you’re a designer, illustrator or artist interested in creating artwork to support the #TurnUp campaign, simply head on over to jellylondon.com to check out the design brief and full details on how to get involved. Submissions close Monday 22nd May.
The #TurnUp challenge is two-fold: getting 18-24 year olds registered to vote, and making enough noise so that everyone registered uses their vote. Anyone is free to take part, the more public participation the better! Those interested in helping with the campaign are encouraged to contact: firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
