Design Principle Posters
DUE DATE: Nov 5th
For this assignment, you will create 3 posters using adobe Illustrator that visualize 3 different design principles. Your posters will be made entirely out of color, shape, line, and Illustrator effects/editing. No type or bitmap images allowed. How you choose to create your posters is entirely up to you - but they should show an understanding of visual communication, vector images/shapes, and basic framing & layout. Your posters may be simple and minimal or complex and colorful - but remember, good design is not about how much you add to something, but about the intention behind it.
Your 3 posters will need to be 11x17 inches, and the posters should each be unique but have a unifying look with each other. You will also be asked to turn in a link to your are.na channel you made to house your inspiration for this project.
