Where: The Design Lab (Between the North side faculty offices & the Coding Lab)

Design Brief
For this year’s Winter Show poster design, we are inspired by topics like physicality, connectedness, shared space, and celebration. We’re looking for a strong conceptual design that communicates the ITP/IMA ethos. We would like to see the more humanistic side of our community and less wires, breadboards, and LEDs. A successful poster will offer a compelling visual in harmony with all the requisite textual information.

Poster design has been around for a very long time, but was made available to the mass market in the 1880s with the birth of the lithographic poster and continues to change today with new technologies. We encourage you to pay a visit to iconic posters and use them as a source of inspiration for your design.
