"Brain Shopping by Ellen Lupton" 2011 , 11x17 poster
This poster was created in my Typography class during my sophomore year of college. I was given the opportunity to design a poster for Ellen Lupton's list of "40 Tips and Tricks for Getting in the Mood to get Ideas", or also "40 Tips and Tricks for Getting Inspired". The biggest challenge for all of us was being able to organize the entire list effectively on one poster. It was mandatory that was use a grid and research and draw inspiration from designers of the Swiss International Style. I remember being inspired by the Swiss designer's use of colors, especially the color red, and their ability to manipulate type and make it look as if its in motion.
