Taking a que from some of my favorite designers, I undertook a challenge of time management and creativity, creating a different poster everyday for 50 days while I traveled back and forth between Boise Idaho, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Instead of journaling, I took to writing small quotes or ideas in my head on sticky notes and then attaching them to my wall. My current bedroom has 142 (I just counted) sticky notes surrounding my workstation and my drawing desk. For these posters, I took one sticky note and then illustrated a 11x17 poster using my illustration and typesetting skills. Here are a few of them.
I wanted to create a way for anyone wanting to view my poster to interact with the work. The simplest way to do this was to have the user drag it around and for the work to stack on top of each other. I use layering in my work a lot so I wanted the interaction to match this theme.
The user is presented with this blank screen and after a few seconds, if no click happens, the work will start appearing on its own.
A simple prompt updated every day saying:
“I am on poster # X”
and then prompt the user to click and organize.
