Design & History
Project: Create your a poster for a local club or organization
You have a couple options for the style of your poster. They are Bauhaus, De Stijl, Geometric Abstraction, or any other geometric heavy design style. You’ll have about two weeks total to work on this (last week + this week). Make sure you choose something that can be developed through this period of time.
Create phase to be finished by Friday, Aug 27

DESIGN FOLDER ASSEMBLY
Design folders should be presented in a manilla folder. All documentation should be stored inside the folder. Documentation for the investigation stage should be stapled on the left inside flap.
Documentation regarding the Design, Plan, Create, and Evaluate should be sorted in that order, stapled to the right inside flap.
Investigate must contain all of the following:

- Research – notes you have taken related to your project, this could include not from assignments during this six weeks, or notes from your own research for the project
- Design brief – an explanation of the what information guided your investigation and how you plan to use this knowledge to solve the problem
- Design specification – the requirements that your product/solution must meet
- Testing plan – the specifics of how you will determine whether your product met the requirements
Design must contain all of the following:
- An expansive set of brainstormed ideas
- At least two complete unique designs for products/solutions that could solve the challenge, neatly presented
- An explanation of why you chose the design you intend to pursue
Plan must contain all of the following:
