This week our assignment was to create a poster for the upcoming Winter Show for the program this December. When thinking out the design and composition, I wanted to tell a story that intertwined the experiences that the winter show will bring.
With story telling, the most common form of content we ingest is that of film — it’s an older medium, yet it still ranks the charts of popularity and really is the vehicle behind creating a visual story. At ITP, we’re taught to tell stories though other mediums. The LED strip is purposely similar to that of film and indicates the beginning of the story of telling a story of ICM and Physical Computing, while displaying in other mediums, such as mobile and VR.
I chose a simple color theme based off of NYU’s main color and chose to keep the other colors within the same hue of NYU purple. The design is purposely composed to drag the viewer’s eyes around the poster, with the focal point the title (winter show 2018) and getting further details when exploring though the canvas.
