Event Poster: A Resume of Failures

In March 2018, I was tasked with creating a poster for a talk given by Cultures Librarian Katrina Spencer and professors Rachel Joo and James Sanchez. The talk was aimed at students from minority and/or underserved backgrounds. I chose a red-grayscale scheme since captures attention, but isn’t horribly distracting. The background is made from scratch (colored shapes). I also found that stacking the profiles (professors) on top of each other to be the “center” of the image, and putting them in grayscale allowed it to match the design. I think this project really allowed me to better understand color settings and shapes on Illustrator, and cropping/selection on Photoshop. 10/10 fun while making it!
