In this assignment I will be creating a Communication Design A2 Poster. This poster must visually communicate an idea and a set of data within an A2 poster which can either be landscape or portrait as the design and layout of this poster is left totally to my own interpretation. The audience must be able to understand the data/idea from the poster alone. They should not need supporting materials such as text or verbal explanation. The poster I will create should use vector graphics which are primarily authored within either Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape.
My Initial Thoughts
Firstly it was decided the theme I would tackle is ‘what is the fattest country?’. The ideas I have came up with are displayed below:
The first idea I have had with this theme is to create vector silhouette of different sized adults. They will be holding onto balloons shaped in the percentage of the country that are overweight. The larger countries will be positioned nearer the bottom of the landscape page emphasising they weight most.
The second idea I have decided upon is to position people around a table, here I will represent their country and the percentage in different forms. Initial ideas are to make the food on the plates on the table will contain food that displays the countries flag.
