Futura Poster Final

For this 11x17 poster I used thirty percent recycled paper with a cream tint. I think the paper gave the poster a warm, finished look and complimented the time period well.

Illustrator Playtime!

In this in class exercise we learned to work with the pen tool in depth for the first time. We were asked to illustrate an animal through an image we found online. I choose my sister's siberian husky as my subject. This project was a fun exciting way to learned what exactly we can do with Illustrator. How awesome!

To My Sister

I would just like to dedicate this post to my sister, Lily. While I recognize the content is a little out of place, this is important to me. Wednesday morning, February 17th Lily and her shipmate's Tall Ship sank 300 miles off the coast of Brazil. In a ship that has circumnavigated the world and traveled hundreds of miles through rough seas this was the last event these students and crew could have expected. In life rafts my sister and her crew awaited rescue for 38 hours and were finally picked up by a passing chinese freighter heading to Argentina's coast. It was Saturday February 20th when the kids reached land. Extremely exhausted and ready to come home, please keep my sister in your thoughts.

S&T Inspiration Design Posters, Frank Chimero

These inspirational design posters by Frank Chimero are very simple, much like the content of the poster. The statements are basic concepts of typographic knowledge and graphic design. I like the simplicity of the presentation.
