Assignment:Design an illustrativeposter with global, critical, socio-political content that stimulates emotion, provokes dialogue, and rouses an audience to support or engage in an issue or event, cause or mission.
In other words: Take a stand + make other people care too.
Project Goals: Introduction to the visual language of advocacy and engagement. Understand the power of the poster. Continue building your Illustrator skills. Can include text as a visual component but does not have to – its your design choice.
Project DUE: Uploaded to the Google Drive – Sunday, Dec. 13 by 5 p.m.
Hello fabulous students! Great job today on our critique, even despite technology snafus! I’m really proud of all you created.

Assignment details: Design and illustrate a cityscape using the perspective tool and a unique color scheme. Your cityscape can be fantasy, based on a real place, or a combination of the two. Build a unique world and put as many details in as possible, continuing to build our storytelling skills.
Your landscape/cityscape can be anywhere in the world… Where do you want to go??
