Lynn Whitney BGSU Distinguished Lecture Series Poster
Once a semester Bowling Green State University honors a faculty member by designating them as a Distinguished Faculty. With this honor the honoree gives a public lecture and a reception is held for them. The assignment was to design a poster for the public lecture. I was personally selected by the honoree to design their poster for their event as typically the responsibility goes through our Marketing and Communication Department.
My approach entailed incorporating the photography of the honoree, Lynn Whitney. I chose to show only glimpses of her photography as I knew she would be revealing them to her audience in her public lecture. My other intention was to push the boundaries of University materials by designing a more contemporary layout, while utilizing the University identity standards of Univers type and the signature orange color.
The results from Lynn were met with delight and the lecture was well attended by a large faculty.
