For me, working as a designer in college meant one thing- posters. Everyone needs one for something, and they are plastered everywhere around campus.
Seeing my work posted ubiquitously across campus, then subsequently covered by newer posters, made me feel like I was part of the zeitgeist on campus. Contributing to the hurtling cycle that is campus activities and student involvement.
These are mostly advertising for events or deadlines, so naturally they are very verbose. Eye catching visuals paired with clear, informational text was the name of the game in a college atmosphere.
Below are some examples of posters I have created, mostly for Eastern Michigan University's Campus Life department, and also various one-off designs for student organizations and one-time-only events.
