Assignment #3. Typographic poster
Using the research type of assignment #2 plus another font (or not, it is up to you!), create a poster for an exhibit about contemporary poster design. Carefully consider the typographic hierarchy of the information presented. A viewer should be able to easily understand the calendar of events and to quickly learn about the event. The poster must also convey the excitement of contemporary design for social change to an audience of people in our community.
The information itself must constitute the “imagery” of the poster.
Size: 11 x 17.
Your poster must be purely typographic. You may use colors, shapes, and lines as well as text, but no other images. Please visit www.designischange.org (Links to an external site.) for reference.
Upload your design –as a jpg to size 100 dpi. save the 300 dpi resolution for your files–to this link.
Please be aware of the poster / hierarchy. For example, the name of the exhibit and the address don’t have to be at the top of the poster. Instead of making one big text box, break up the content and move it around the page. Use an interesting variety of type sizes (some big, some small), but use variety in a consistent way.
Use color. Even just making the background a color helps your piece look more like a poster.
Text to include in any manner that you choose while designing your poster in Illustrator or In Design:
