Client: Special Olympics Texas
Project: Eunice Kennedy Shriver Typographic Illustration
Eunice Kennedy Shriver was a pioneer of opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities. She started Special Olympics in 1968 and it has grown to become a worldwide year-round movement providing sports and programs for more than 4.4 million athletes and counting. For this design, I converted her portrait to a vector illustration and superimposed words from her speeches on top, editing the image to find a balance where the text was readable and the portrait was recognizable.
