Forces of Nature Poster: Thumbnails



Create a 15″ x 20” poster for the following topic: Nature’s Elements: Fire, Earth, Air, Water. Chooseone of the following categories to explore the topic:

1. The Force of Nature: A poster showcasing the force OR the impact of one of the four elements.(See Relief Posters, So-Cal Fire Posters, Haiti Posters)

2. The Stats of Nature: An information graphics poster for one of the four elements.

3. The Science of Nature: A poster for a potential scientific lecture which uses one or more of the four basic elements in its research. An example— Lecture title: Professor of Mathematics at the University of Arizona., Alan Newell, ”The Universal Nature of Fibonacci Patterns,” part of the symposium, ”The Growth of Form in Mathematics, Physics and Biology.” The visuals could be inspired by the textures/patterns created by each element to showcase the reoccurring patterns in nature. (fractals, spirals, waves, bubbles, stripes, etc)

This week research nature’s elements. Gather information (text) & inspiration (visuals), brainstorm ideas to start the visual layout your poster.”


I made up an event based on a TED talk:

Brian Skerry reveals ocean’s glory — and horror

Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 7:30 – 9:00pm

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $5; free for UW students with ID.

I started with a word association with the words: glory, horror and ocean and generated some thumbnails.
