Design an 11x17 museum exhibition poster and a 4.25x6 postcard showcasing the three visual creators you've just studied. All three visual creators should be referenced visually somehow, as the fictional exhibiton will showcase the work of all three.
The exhibition should take place in a gallery or museum here in Portland. This is your opportunity to research various art and design venues in town and choose the most appropriate one for your creators! Once you've narrowed down your venue, visit it and look at their show postcards and posters. You'll find that most venues will have a poster/postcard "formula" for you to follow/emulate.
With this project, I'm interested in seeing how you research, and how you approach your work. This will hep me tailor our future projects together!
STEP 1 - due Wednesday 4/7
Research art/design venues in Portland and narrow your search down to one venue! Visually document all your venue research in a Flickr set called "225.02_venue_rsch"
If you have time on Tuesday or Wednesday visit 1 - 3 final choice venues and document it [see step 3 below]
STEP 2 - due Wednesday 4/7
Visually document your preliminary poster/postcard thumbnail sketches in a Flickr set called "225.02_thumbnails"
Wednesday in class we'll go over your initial research and thumbnails in small groups. Bring your laptop, and any materials you need to work in class.
STEP 3 - due next Monday 4/12
Visit your venue in person, document your visit, their posters and their postcards in a Flickr set called "225.02_venue_visit." Have this on Flickr by Saturday night, so we can give you comments and help if you need it before designing your final poster/postcard.
Post working poster and postcard designs in Flickr as you work on them, so we can give you comments and help if you need it before designing your final poster/postcard.
STEP 4 - due next Monday 4/12
Final Poster and postcard due in a Flickr set called "225.02_finals" Please also print them out [doesn't have to be fancy paper or anything] so we can crit them in person.
