The task for this project was to visualize an important date on a poster. I picked a personally important date – 06-05-2011 – when I decided to study design and handed in my application and homework to my design school. At this time there were two dominating emotions: on the one hand I was happy to have made this decision, on the other hand I was confused, unsure if I fit into this study area and if I would be accepted.
The dynamic design of my poster visualizes the process from a black and stable life to a more colorful and creative future where everything is possible. I illustrated this transition by splitting up the color black into its printing ink basic colors C-M-Y, resulting in a color explosion. The poster is dominated by many unregular lines, showing my confusion and uncertainty around the date. The design represents movement and liveliness at this point of my life.
