This course is an introduction to Visual Organization and Information Design. Students will explore different types of information and the modes of visual organization and representation that are appropriate to them. The class involves a studio and will draw upon previous design and technology skills.
I plan to make it a dodecagon when folded it is supposed to make a type of a box and as you unfolded it will create a poster in both sides.
Type and Style
Since I want the main focus to be in the constellations and I want the person that interacts with the poster to feel and understand how he or she is part in the universe and his relationship to the stars, I want the type to be neutral, clean and not distracting. So I am going to use Helvetica in white or light gray over a dark background. The style is going to be a fusion of a sky map with Leonardo DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man.
