Museum of Contemporary Art Promotion
You will design a promotion for an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art which would be effective as a print (postcard) or web design. You will research the graphic design styles of Bauhaus, Constructivism and Cubism. The design will consist of a grid structure of your choice, graphics appropriate of the combined three styles, as well as colors and typography that are expressive of these styles. The grid shapes and number of sections will be your choice. You can break out of the grid and the grid may break up in some areas. Keep in mind overall balance.
You will include a figure or portrait (may be simplified) and geometric shapes. Subtle textures may be used if appropriate, gradients should be avoided. Text within the grid is optional. The overall look can be an “updated” appearance of the three styles as you will be using Illustrator software and the shapes will be crisper, less painterly, and the print quality will be sharper. You will be paying homage to the designers of this era. The informational text may be placed wherever you wish on the promo.
