After being supplied with the text from History teachers, colour coding and shapes were used to try and make the words memorable as well as demonstrating the relationships between the different words (the ones on the right being easier to understand due to having explanations).
A black background with reversed out text set in Helvetica Neue was used to make the words and colours stand out, as well as matching our design-aware, forward thinking History department. The explanations on the right were the Light weight and coloured white to offer contrast with the main word.
Two sheets of 19x13 inch Epson inkjet paper were used but the posters could be easily produced in a larger format as it is 100% vector format on Illustrator.
A white single sheet of A4 version was also produced which had the advantage of being much cheaper to distribute.
