All of these were created for student art shows at the Community College of Aurora. The challenge was to create imagery for an exhibition that I didn't have any imagery. Instead I used imagery that I associated with art and the theme of the show. With exception of the Spring 2014 show poster, which combined cut paper with Adobe Illustrator, they were chosen to advertise the show and displayed around the school.
For this poster I researched vintage travel posters for Japan, specifically Kyoto. I scanned different patterned paper and cut and re-arranged it in Illustrator to give it the flat appearance of vintage travel posters.
This was created as a visual representation of Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I used the image of a wall and large text to convey the image of people not being able to cross borders. The small gap emphasizes the idea that it's a wall and that it's not just a display of 2-point linear perspective.
This was created to advertise the Computer Science department of the Community College of Aurora. I wanted to create something that was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, that would be at home in an 80s "COMPUTERS ARE COOL!" commercial, but that also communicated its message clearly. In short, I wanted it to be fun, cute, and effective.
