A poster can be many things: a tool for advertisers, a means of propaganda, or a call to arms. But in order to persuade or provoke, a poster must first inform and engage.
This book introduces the key conceptual and graphic elements that make up a great poster. Fun activities encourage readers to try to marry two concepts to convey a message, to exploit the power of the diagonal, and to consider the importance of typefaces. Seminal examples by Alexander Rodchenko, Saul Bass, and Tomi Ungerer give the book depth and context.
A timely book meant to motivate and inspire young minds, this book will be useful to anyone (particularly young adults and teens) looking for a playful and participatory approach to poster design.
