  • MIDTERM: If I did not get yours last week – I must receive by end of class today!
  • If you have not already done so, submit all your sketches via scan or digital photo into the class dropbox folder titled ‘Week5-Sketches’, create a folder with your name on it and add all your digital sketches (email me if you need access to this folder:
  • 2 sketches (paper and pencil) of your full poster – we will review in class.

In Class Presentation

  • Steve Brodner
  • Al Hirshfeld


  • Time to work
  • Mid-term individual meetings


  • Photoshop Review – Set up poster with correct dimensions
  • Review last week’s lesson


  • Revise as needed your 2 sketches (paper and pencil) to explore different possibilities for your final poster layout.  Don’t assume first ideas and solutions are the best. Take chances, you can always  tighten things up later.  You may add type at this stage. Think about using type to help visually communicate your concept. Experiment with a variety of approaches. Experiment with type  and composition perhaps focus on the expression through the letterforms themselves, as well as through  their arrangement on the page.
