Dr. Michael A. Dichio, professor of political science at Fort Lewis College, hosts a series entertaining and informative speaking events every semester. Dr. Dichio’s “Welcome To Your Life” series presents a broad range of speakers, from scientists to outdoor enthusiasts, to philosophers.
I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Dichio to create promotional posters for each speaker series, creating catchy illustrations that capture the spirit of the institution as well as the idea of personal growth.
Integrating a large amount of written copy into a poster while retaining visual interest is always a challenge. I merged clear, readable grid systems and typographic hierarchy with illustration in order to draw the viewer in for a closer look.
