final project, media practices:design

5 May

For the final project you will need to select an issue or organization you would like to work with and submit four different images that promote your organization in some way. All of these images should feel like part of the same collection. You should not simply repeat the same image in four different sizes. Each image should be its own but they should all relate to each other either through color, theme or visual language.

You need to create a:
POSTER – something that you might see hung on a bulletin baord for example. Most likely this will be the size of a piece of paper 8.5 X 11.

1 Poster

WEB BANNER – the narrow rectangles that advertise things online. Think something around 2 inches by 6 inches.

2 Web Banner

POSTAGE STAMP – those things that keep going up in price. These vary but are rarely more than an inch and a half square or so.

STATIONERY – basically the letterhead that might be used for this organization or issue. This needs to be in black and white or greyscale for an additional challenge! This should be on the top and perhaps side or bottom of an 8.5 X 11 piece of paper.
