For John Maeda’s lecture, this poster uses text blocks of different widths, printed repeatedly on a 70 foot roll of paper. These parts of the poster may start out in sync at the beginning of the roll of paper, but they quickly start to shift in relation to one another. In this way, each poster is unique and contains a different chunk of information about the lecture, frequently requiring two posters to display the full set of information.
Part of the power of this poster is that each person who got one – and they were quickly claimed after the lecture – got a unique print.
Much like with other lecture posters, for this poster, I created a set of pieces and gave them out to other designers, who each designed a different part of the poster.
with Paul DeVay, Joyce Lee, and Ryan Willis.
