Design a poster for the public lecture "The Paints We Can't Drink" that communicates the event information and sets the expectations of the attendee for the event. The sub title, "Communicating Science in a Politicized World" demanded a solution that didn't take sides or isolate any potential attendees.
Given the political nature of the talk, a solution that abstractly represented communication through the bird images and tangled information threads, was necessary to keep the poster design as neutral as possible. The tangled ball of thread, while representing communication lines, also starts to form, or deconstruct, an atom structure to nod back to the scientific nature of the lecture.
Client and lecturer were excited by a design with a concept that could so accurately communicate a complicated subject. Speaker is interested in using as a book cover if her research is published. Attendance at the event was above average.
