Blog Post #5
There are so many ways to "get" news now -- on your mobile phone, through an RSS feed, etc. Do you think most of the audience is ready and/or using these types of technologies? How do you think people will get news in 10 or 15 years? Will it be through a standard desktop computer -- or through some other type of technology?
Project #3 (Print Poster)
Design a poster for an event using Photoshop / InDesign / and design principles we've discussed in class.
Ideally, you should choose an event / organization that could use your work so that you're getting something useful out of the project. Clubs, greek orgs, churches, or other organizations that you're a member of would be good possibilities. If you can't come up with an event that you're involved with, you can select one at random from www.bgdailynews.com/calendar
The poster should include at least three elements:
- at least one eyecatching graphic/photo
- a good headline
- compelling body copy
Your syllabus says that the poster project will be worth 100 points. Those 100 points will awarded on the following criteria:
10pts - Project completed on time, on spec
15pts - Use of good design principles (balance, structure, organization, etc)
15pts - Use of good design aesthetics (color, typography, etc)
30pts - Message Communication (can I understand what the event is about and does the poster make me want to come?)
30pts - General creativity
You should post a PDF of the project to your portfolio page on your web site and you should turn in a hard copy printout of the poster. Both these are due at the beginning of class on 3/29.
