Project Brief

To design an information poster on the topic of non-indigenous species. The poster is 27x27inch. Using words and images represent a belief, issue, event, or action, which is related to the chosen subject matter. First and foremost, the poster must be used to describe the topic of invasion. Secondly, the poster should be used to announce an event.

Learning Objectives

  • Study the basic problem of non-indigenous species. Cultivate an interest in one case-study and further your investigations and research.
  • Consider “formatting” your research/analysis, ideation, and refinements so that it can easily reveal your thought process.
  • Create a grid system to organize all layers of information– text, images, graphics.

Reflections

Students had to wear many hats for this project, such as writer, editor, photographer, illustrator, designer. They learned a lot through the design process. Time management had been a problem for this big project. Some couldn't finish it in 4 weeks and had to get extension on final print stage.
