Project Reframe

In response to the negative impacts of pandemic life on mental health, and as part of their senior capstone project at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) in 2021, artist Liz Geoffrey created PROJECT REFRAME, a series of 1,000 positive affirmation postcards printed using letterpress printing. Viewers were invited to personalize and mail these postcards, spreading encouragement and fostering connections through the postal service during a time of isolation.

This MKE Airport iteration reimagines the original project, which was on view April 16 – May 8, 2021, further exploring Liz’s passion for both analog printing and mental health. As a MIAD graduate with a B.F.A. in Illustration, Liz currently works as a freelance graphic designer, keeping their hands inky through volunteer work at printing museums and local shops.
