First Year Reading Experience Poster
This poster was designed for the 2012 First Year Reading Experience at the University of South Carolina. Every year, the students enrolled in the Series Development & Practice are required to design posters to represent the novel that has been selected for the incoming Freshman class to read and discuss as a group. Each student is then required to present their poster in front of a panel of judges.
The selected winner's poster is printed and hung around campus and distributed in postcard form to the entire Freshman class. In addition, the winner receives a check from the University and is asked to speak in front of 5,000 students and faculty members at the First Year Reading Experience in August. 

This postcard is another version of the poster itself - closely cropped for greater readability. Having a slightly different postcard design also means that the students will have something new to look at during the First Year Reading Experience.
