Everyone has a passion, an opinion, or a cause. Whether it is social, political, psychological or theological, raising awareness of a situation is something we see every day. People run for Austism, walk for Breast Cancer, and collect food for those living in poverty.

Create a poster that demonstrates your feelings on an issue or cause. Include imagery, metaphors, symbols and written language/word. Don't pick too general of a topic so make sure it is specific. choose a cause that is personal to you which will motivate your energy and effort into this project.

Consider all of these elements:
-your audience, color, content, composition.
-size, medium

1. Complete a proposal and get feedback from the instructor.
2. Create multiple sketches on layout plans and poster content. Document research exploring your topic/cause.
3. Studio time to work on poster. (Poster can be made through a variety of digital programs or hand made traditionally. )
4. Turn in completed work. Create revisions after class critique.
5. Complete self evaluation.
