In Digital Media class we are beginning work today on our first project the Shanti Peace Poster. Above is a great example of a good peace poster from the Holstee design lab in Brooklyn. We'll start by learning a little bit more about Photoshop and then we'll start creating images and researching quotes and symbols of peace.
Before we begin we'll look a bit at what makes good design in a poster such as this and look at some examples below that are clever and original and clearly express ideas of peace. We'll look at the artists below and do a little bit of research of symbols associated with peaces and some design basics.
Next we will begin to think of designs visually using 3-5 small thumbnail drawings such as the example I created below. This is a designers visual entrance into the creative process- small quick sketches which give a sense of what the final design might look like and how it might be best composed.
