This is an assignment for students in the information design program at Bradley University. But anyone else is welcome to try it as well.
Your assignment is to read and synthesize two articles by Kevin Kelly, and create visual communication materials that clearly and visually communicate the key concepts in a visual form. There are two products that you will create for this assignment:
1. A 24-inch by 36-inch poster designed to be hung on the wall. This poster should not require anyone to explain it -- it should fully explain itself, including why you should read it.
2. A brief PowerPoint presentation that can be delivered in 5 minutes or less. This is designed to be presented by a speaker. In fact, you will present it and your presentation will be part of your grade.
Here is a link where you can download the files.
This assignment is due Monday November 6, or Tuesday November 7, depending on which section you are in.
If you have questions about the assignment please post them as comments on my blog, Communication Nation.
