I spent the past three weeks developing the fall lecture posters :-)
It was a graphic experiment so to speak.
Inspired by artist Jean Arp
I learned a lot about the sad limits of CMYK spectrum :-(
But a helpful link to figure out how to accurately print and resolve some issues...
My final year of architecture school is approaching :-)
This was a bit of a crash course for graphic design
I worked with professor Landry Smith
He would advise me on each draft, and I'd make iterations, learning about the importance of
themes I tend to stray away from by my strange chaotic nature!
A beginning scheme/ concept
playing with color and contrast
We decided to tie these shapes into some sort of architectural theme
here the peach, a noguchi lamp
pink, noguchi table
peach 2, a shape from Calder mobile
blue, kiesler table
and yellow, a kiesler chair
The shapes weren't as interesting as I'd like. And so I took the forms from a Jean Arp painting
and using the outlines more abstractly,
to show the outline less of a duplicate, more of a shape of its own
I also adjusted the text on a three column grid
against the four column large lettered grid
We reformated the smaller text to read with clarity and order
using underlining and font size, indicating importance of information
And lastly, adjusting the colors
so that the yellow column didn't look quite as strong adjacent to the pink columns
and to use the white as a subject color for general information
Jean Arp !
