The time is right to speak up for justice, according to the designer of this year’s poster for the 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Day Commemoration.

Hayle Stoner, a senior graphic design major, created the poster in Lanny Sommese’s GD 400 Time and Sequence course that exposes students to real-world design with a deadline, as well as client and prescribed project specifications.
