ICON-9 is the poster proposal and social media promotion for the ninth edition of The Illustration Conference. This year the event takes place in Austin, the capital of Texas. For the project, it sought to combine elements from the illustration world with characteristics that could also represent the site of the conference. Pencil shavings, paper clips, pencil, cactus and a road map of Texas were combined using digital collage. All these objects are interacting through a head, resenting the figure of illustrators who participate in the meeting. For social media promotion, it was designed a series of teasers and posts that hold the same aesthetic of the main poster. Announcing the speakers, attractions and countdown, this would be a way to highlight the identity of the conference and attract more participants.
The Icon-9 poster was selected as one of the best poster of the year in the 2016 Scholarship Competition, sponsored by the Society of Illustrators.
