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 exhibition will showcase the work of all three.
The exhibition should take place in a gallery or museum or boutique or coffee shop 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 help me tailor our future projects together!
STEP 1 - due Monday 4/4
Research art/design venues in Portland. If you can, visit your 1-3 choice venue[s] in and document each. Document your visit, their posters and their postcards in separate moodboards for each in a Flickr set called "225.02" and post them to the group pool.
STEP 2 - due Monday 4/4
Visually document your preliminary poster/postcard thumbnail sketches in a Flickr set called "225.02" and post it to the group pool.
Monday in class we'll go over your initial research and thumbnails in small groups for classmate feedback and suggestions. Bring your laptop, and any materials you need to work in class.
STEP 3 - due Wednesday 4/6
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 together in person. On Wednesday in class we'll go over your final posters and postcards as a class. Don't forget to bring your laptop!
