This is a poster design I created for a Message and Content class at Portfolio Center during my 3rd quarter. Each student was given a "Rule" from Jonh Cage's Rules for Students and Teachers. The assignment was to portray the given rule through graphic elements of our own choosing and have it be related to our school environment so that it may be used as a promotional piece for incoming students.
The rule I was given was Rule #7: "The only rule is work. If you work, it will lead to something. It's the people who do all the work, all the time, who eventually catch onto things."
I chose to hand-draw an "Art School Mandala" to show an example of consistant, time-consuming, hard work. The mandala is made up of tools often used at Portfolio Center (ex: cameras, paint brushes, and pencils, etc).
