Sell Yourself

Explorations of Identity and Graphic Design


Dear future graphic designers:

Your mission: should you choose to accept it (and you should) is to sell yourself using graphic design techniques.

You will have a few options to sell yourself that will, in the end, take the form of a poster. You will have the options to

a. tell a story through a movie poster about your life

b. Self Portrait

c. Restaurant, an artist/ musician poster, or a festival that in some way encompasses who you are

You will use various techniques, including traditional cut-and-paste methods, printmaking, drawing, painting, collage, photography to create aspects of your poster and you will be taught typography, design principles and Photoshop techniques. You will professionally print and present your posters at the end of the lesson.


-what do you want to say about yourself?

-is realistic or symbolic representation more important?

-how will you incorporate text?
