To popularize the story of Jonas Salk’s sharing his vaccine without a patent and show that another way is possible.
This banner was designed for the May 5, 2021 event in Washington D.C. It’s meant to work like the banner that would be used for a group marching in a parade. You can download versions for various regions we have Free the Vaccine for COVID-19 participants. Or modify one to make your own.
Join the Jonas Salk Fan Club and make one for your local chapter.
It should be a magnet for photographers – hopefully!
The design is based off the Jonas Salk sticker I made just for fun, kind of on a whim. That’s how it starts sometimes.
Original files can be provided for exhibition
- The work can be reproduced on site with instructions (provided)
Reflections from Steve Lambert
If someone else were going to make/use/do something like this, what advice would you give them?
Have this printed at a local copy shop/office supply store. You can get it printed on plain paper for pretty cheap. It won’t look *great* but it will look good enough.
Of course, you can also print it on something heavier for a higher cost. And you should if you can!
A lot of these parade banners have yellow fringe at the bottom (do an image search for “parade banner”). That’s, of course, optional but would be a nice touch.
