A Palm Springs resident for nearly twenty years Richard Vaughn, Advertising Art Director, Palm Springs Life Magazine is the artist behind this year’s official Pride Festival poster.
“For the 2022 Greater Palm Springs Pride poster, I was inspired by Robert Indiana’s iconic “Love” image, which stacks the L and O atop the V and E to create a graphic emphasizing the message “love.” Similarly, this year’s Pride theme, “SAY GAY,” packs a powerful and political message for the LGBTQ+ community.”
Richard added, “When I visualized the theme, I saw bold letters overlapping creating positive and negative shapes, which provided the opportunity to use Gilbert Baker’s original 1978 Pride flag colors. I added a dialog bubble tail to express the power of speech. I love the unabashed way the poster conveys its message.”
“We shared the theme Say Gay with Richard seeking a bold design to elevate the importance of two words. Simple but serious words intended to set the mood for Pride in Palm Springs,” said Ron deHarte, president of Palm Springs Pride. “Richard’s imagery was used on the cover of the 2021 Palm Springs Pride Magazine so we had a good feeling that he would create a great design.
