Given the task to create a poster design for the Jake Heggie Opera, 'Three Decembers'. I use a tagline from the opera (everyone has a name) and created my poster design using names of people in my class and family member. The minimal type size creates a pattern in the background that draws the viewer in closer as well as makes it an interactive design with people searching for their names/names of loved ones.
