Vote for East Lake

Well, you’re actually voting for the design of the new East Lake banners, done by local graphic designer Christian Bizarth in this year’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Awards as a People’s Design Award nominee. The design “is a landscape of the community of East Lake which includes East Lake and Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve in Birmingham, Alabama. The artist has captured the ebb and flow of lake water and then complements it with Ruffner Mountain’s ridge.

The banners currently extend through the community, which was incorporated in 1900 and annexed into the city of Birmingham in 1910, along 1st Avenue North.

This is one of two banners that are hanging on the corner of the former Regions Bank headquarters in downtown Birmingham that were installed earlier this week. The signs announce the pending arrival of a Renaissance Hotel in the city center and mention the partners and participants in the project. Doesn’t hurt that it references the city’s new logo either.
