Make a visual collection of 32 specimens. Document all specimens using your documentation method of choice. In black and white, make booklets that use letter-size paper folded in half to make for a final trim size of 8.5 x 5.5 in.
Walk around campus and find a letter- or tabloid-size flyer that is of interest to you. After spending time with your chosen flyer and considering its hierarchy of information, redesign it to make it more evocative, expressive, or clear as a black and white 11 x 17 in. vertical poster. This assignment is to be done by hand, through collage and with the help of the photocopier. Deconstruct the original flyer by making copies of it, cutting parts out to enlarge or downsize them, cropping, and manipulating elements in different ways as you see fit. Glue your elements onto an 11 x 17 in. sheet of paper to make your poster and photocopy this to make a flat 11 x 17 in. final version to bring to class.
