We are thrilled to unveil the 2015 Grace Hopper Celebration India (GHCI) poster. Croatian artist Bruno Budrovic created the dynamic artwork based on our 2015 theme, #OurTimeToLead.
Each year we commission a different artist to create the poster art for GHCI based on the year’s theme. Our selection process is anonymous and gender-neutral. We remove the names, genders and nationalities of all the artists until after a selection is made based on samples from the artists’ portfolios. After we select an artist, we work with her or him to create an original illustration.
This year, we selected Croatian artist Bruno Budrovic to create the poster. Although his career began in construction engineering and beekeeping, Budrovic has developed a rich, painterly style as an illustrator, and his work is now in high demand among publishers, non-profits and advertisers.
The GHCI 2015 leadership team chose the theme #OurTimeToLead. It was important that the concept be positive, inspiring and reflective of our vision for women in technology.
