This past spring, I taught a course that sponsored about 10 conversations between myself and designers who initiated project ideas and found funding, sponsors or distribution. Think books, products, furniture, website aggregrators, and more. Although I produced the posters in inDesign, I can imagine these in html and css … made for the screen, with a printout being extra. So, let’s do that. Create a single page website for one of the lecture posters — Danielle Aubert’s lecture.
You may make the design your own. But given that this is a half-day assignment, I’d suggest working with the design concept provided, but altering some details as needed/wanted. Use Helvetica as a typeface.
