In this assessment, we needed to design an A3 poster for a quote within design constraints. My constraints were 1 typeface, but unlimited sizes and colours. I actually found the unlimited bit to be harder, because I find creativity from problem solving (i.e. I’ve only got one thing to work with, so how do I make it look good). I also totally didn’t connect with the quote, so this was an interesting exercise in producing something I’m not particularly inspired by.
Here is the poster:
And here is the design process documentation we also need to prepare:
The pace of these courses in scary fast, but the fact that I’m actually making stuff is really exciting. Fingers crossed this project turns out ok, because although I did this individually, this particular assessment is marked as a group with 2 other classmates who had the same quote but different design constraints. I really enjoyed working with others, Google Hangouts helped, and it was cool to be learning online but really get the classroom experience.
