The Communication Programs class at UW was an introduction to creating and adapting rich metaphors across diverse sets of printed material. First we researched and developed themes around a design related topic to flesh out throughout the quareter. I centered my conference around ways in which globalization has both unified and divided the design community at large, hence the title Convergence Divergence. My primary visualization was the poster below which I created by shooting 5 second exposures of a Litebrite in a darkroom.
Didot, with it's graceful hairline serifs, complimented the delecate photographic and illustrative forms present in larger applications. And the clean yet curvatious Helvetica brackets became a flexible adaptation of the theme for the smaller one and two color stationary applications pictured below.
