Think like an artist: Design a poster

Whether we realize it or not, when we look out into the world we are seeing the world through a series of compositions.  Each time we look in a new direction or zoom in at a targeted object, we are creating a new composition. And while looking is one thing, creating from scratch is another.  And much like composing music or the written thought, how we organize our visual material determines how the viewer will respond to and understand what we have created.

 

Get creative with design in class

For the graphic poster project, the first task is to develop basic skills in Autodesk® SketchBook® Pro to develop a graphic illustration of a stork to develop a graphic style poster as part of the Design Thinking process. In order to accomplish this, students will replicate the sample poster design by repeating the steps presented in the technical videos and PDF instructions.
