What You'll Make

You'll start by selecting a subject for you poster design (can be a real event or let your imagination run wild). We'll then take you through our process of brainstorming and solidifying 2-3 solid ideas that will make it to the sketch phase. Based on sketches, you'll select a final concept and design for your poster and get work. Based on your chosen style, you'll have the option to jump right into the computer or begin illustrating on paper. You'll share your final design (or design in progress) to receive feedback from your peers.

We'll also be sharing design resources and provide examples from our own portfolio as well as cover how client feedback can make or break your project and how to keep your design on track.
