The fourth project for Intermediate Computing for Design class was to create two poster designs for a fictional lecture called “Nature as Design.” One had to be done using Illustrator, and the other using Photoshop and InDesign. The challenge was to design two posters that have a cohesive, complimentary style and will catch the public’s eye. Using different software to create the same effect for different posters also helped inform the students the differences between the programs’ capabilities.
This project was their first project dealing with typography. Students were also required to print their designs on special non-coated textural and/or colored paper ordered online. Most students chose to order from Neenah. As this was their first time printing on paper other than Epson, they had to make adjustments in relation to image color and contrast.
Below are photographs of posters that were turned in. All have aspects to be improved upon for their portfolio, but overall I was very pleased with their results!
