The Downtown Phoenix Partnership seeks to commission a local artist to create the cover artwork for its upcoming 2014 January-June Downtown Phoenix Directory.
90,000 copies of the Directory are distributed during a 6 month period. This is the first year of an artist-designed cover.
The brochure-sized cover will depict a specific activated street in Downtown Phoenix with bicyclists and pedestrians. The final product should be stylistic but still easily recognizable.
