Travel Posters (Graphic Design Class)

These beauties were executed in gouache by sophomores and juniors. I showed the students a Powerpoint presentation of vintage travel posters, and we talked about simplification and working without traditional shading.  This is the second time that I gave this assignment.  Last year the students had to use more words- like- Travel to Brazil (and more).  I think they enjoyed making fewer words and learning more about font styles, instead.

Wow.... Would your students be interested in making a travel poster or series of posters for the Catskills?
