“Good” Poster

Your job here is simple. Make a “good” poster. You can use any program you wish. Personally, I’d recommend Photoshop, but if you don’t know Photoshop and aren’t ready to learn, use Word or whatever you’re comfortable with. Heck, make it on paper if you really want, but you’ll have to look back on this and make changes/improvements to it later!

The poster needs to have one or more images

The poster needs to have one or more block of text.

The poster needs to be creative and interesting.

Other than that, the rest is up to you! Make a poster about something you’re interested in. I’m obsessed with music, so I’d probably make a poster for an upcoming concert by a band I like. If you want to use that idea, go ahead, but you’re welcome to do basically anything.

Try to think about a poster’s purpose. Where do you see them? What should they do? If I make and hang up a poster, what am I hoping will happen? Those are some thoughts to consider.

Along with your poster file (named FirstPoster or GoodPoster or ConcertPoster, etc. Anything untitled or unnamed won’t be opened), you will hand in a reflection. I’d recommend creating a Word document and calling it PosterReflection, or something like that. If you know InDesign or some other way of doing the reflection, that’s fine. If writing isn’t your thing and you’d rather just talk about your work, come see me at lunch.

Reflection questions:

  1. What does a “good” poster have/do? How do you know if a poster is “good”?
  2. What did you do that is “good”? What do you like about your poster? What are you proud of?
  3. What do you think could be improved on your poster? What could you have done better? If you had to do it again, what would you change?

Put some thought into those questions and explain yourself well for full marks! If it’s really short or not in full sentences, you won’t get full marks. This isn’t a writing class, so spelling and grammar and all of that stuff don’t really count, but they always help to make you look more intelligent.
