The brief: Make someone else care about an issue that’s important to you.
The poster. Possibly the purest form of visual communication. In a flash you must arrest the attention of a passerby and alter his or her perception. Change it. Reinforce it. Make it see something differently. Surprise, delight, inspire, motivate. Part of my involvement in UNL’s Design + Social Justice Symposium is to lead a poster making workshop for Advanced Graphic Design students. Working with Stacy Asher, Assistant Professor of Art, we’ll invite the students to use graphic design as a tool for social change. The workshop will take place next week with final designs displayed in Richards Hall during the week of the symposium.
