In-Class Assignment

Create the design for a poster to promote the NSCAD library's book sale. The text for the poster is in the provided text (.txt) file.

You must use all the text in the provided file, --Assignment text --.txt; you can also add any text if you like. The NSCAD logo (provided) must appear. The final image must be created in Illustrator or InDesign, but you can use Photoshop for altering bitmap images if you like. You do not have to use NSCAD colours.

The poster must be 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall.

Make the poster attractive and readable.

It is only 1-sided.

You may not use any other files other than the ones provided in the zipped folder, but you may create images of your own, in any of the three programs. You do not need to use all the images.

NSCAD logo must appear.

The poster would be printed in colour, so you can use colour in the design.

Your objective is to design a poster that is readable and attractive, and that motivates people to go and buy books. Range of technique, attention to detail and technical skill are more important than design or concept, but creativity and visual appeal will be rewarded.
