This was the question designers answered at “Speak Up, Scale Down,” a juried design show held at the Pet Shop Gallery in Omaha in December 2018. Student graphic designers from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and professional designers from the local area were challenged to create small-scale 4”x6” risograph prints with a large impact. Designers were forced to creatively overcome the scale limitation through dynamic layouts, colors, and images. The goal of the show was to present local design talent as well as raise money for Benson First Friday, an Omaha based nonprofit dedicated to supporting the region’s emerging and established artists.

Scalability and color palette

The logo remains highly legible at small scales, which was especially important for the Speak of Scale brand given its scale limitations for printed materials. The bright pink and black in the color palette is inspired by the colors commonly used in risograph printing—the print method being used for all of the posters in the show.
