The assignment: to design a poster for a lecturer of your choice. Through the choice of fonts, color and other design techniques, the poster should successfully give the viewer the appropriate context and personality of the lecturer.
The lecturer for these series of posters was Tadao Ando, a Japanese architect. The use of grey tones and concrete texture in the poster reflects upon Ando’s use of concrete in many of his works. The choice of a simple, clean font and layout of the poster places an emphasis on his architectural style.
