Be Creative and Save Lives with (Over) RED

Apple + (RED)
Before the holiday shopping season is upon us, Apple announced that it would be supporting the (RED) campaign for World AIDS Day on December 1st. Beyond donating a portion of its retail and online store sales to the campaign, Apple also put the spotlight on many iOS apps that have joined the cause. You can browse and download apps that have turned (RED) in the iTunes store.

(Over) App
Over is one of the design-related apps that has turned (RED). If you haven’t heard about the Over app before, it allows users to be creative by overlaying artwork and text onto their photos.

10 Participating Artists
I’m honored to participate with Over in their support of the (RED) campaign initiative by offering an artwork pack for sale in their app. It will be available for two weeks only!

I’ve joined 9 other designers including Jessica Hische and 3 font designers who sell on Creative Market Nicky Laatz, Ryan Martinson (Yellow Design Studio), and Justine Lazo (Muse Design Co.)!

My Artwork Contribution
Here’s a look at the larger batch of artwork that I produced for the campaign. A curated portion of this art made it into my final contribution in the Over app.

Available Until December 7th
Download the Over app for free, and grab an art or font pack by one of the contributing artists for the next 14 days! 100% of the proceeds will go to fight aids through the (RED) initiative.
