Design can be soley for the purpose of solving a problem for a client / user or it can have personal significiance. I challenge students with a variety of different projects and problems. In this assignment I asked the students to research a social or political issue which was personally important and significant to them. Each student was asked to research the issue of their choice, then design a poster by hand using their own concepts and opinions about their chosen topic. The poster needed to include both imagery and typography.
