Design Culture Now Tabloid Poster
Programs Used: Illustrator and Indesign
Design Challenge: Tabloid Poster Design
In Typography I, we were tasked with creating an 11"x17" (tabloid) poster using a typographic hierarchy of information. The design of information must constitute the "imagery" of the poster itself, but must not use images or illustrations.
In terms of my typographic system, I used a geometric typeface called Cy for the descriptions of each designer to contrast the curves of the blob.
For the titles and headings, I used the typeface Bluu Next. Lastly, I maintained consistency by aligning bodies of text to the left.
I experimented with the interchangability of negative and positive space using to connecting posters.
Upon researching each designer featured in Design Culture Now, I discovered that each one specializes in various sectors of design (civic design, commercial design, architectural design, and UI/UX design). My use of blobs to separate these designers' names, allowing me
to highlight the distinction between each designer.
