For one academic year (from 2007 to 2008), I ran the Professional Practice lecture series on the MA Communication Design program at Central Saint Martins, London. In practice, this meant inviting speakers of interest to come and talk to the students for an hour on a Tuesday night, on subjects ranging from independent publishing to play. Some nights we hosted a series of small-scale informal film screenings. Part of the delight of running this series meant I got to design a poster to advertise each of the events to the student community. The posters were meant for internal use only, and my constraint was that I had to spend no more than 60 minutes on each.
Often, due to shortage of time & budget, I had to be creative with low-res options available via online image searches or find images in my personal photo library that would suit. These are some favourites.
