Last day of class = marathon printing party. First we brainstormed songs and created a spotify playlist. Then, using Globe Poster wood type, visual language, and ornaments, we designed two posters that could serve as promotions for the playlist–just like Globe Poster did for 80 years, with showcards that advertised everything from local carnivals and church fairs to car races and R & B, rock, funk, go-go and hip-hop concerts. As an extra challenge, each group of poster designers had to incorporate a Globe-ish word into their design: “shake” for one group, “wild” for the other.
