Half Hour Flyers: A Design Exercise

  • I'm an RA at my university, which basically means I am the resident policewoman / counselor / psychologist / party planner of my dorm. When I'm not prowling the halls looking for trouble with a nose out for herbal vapors, I'm planning programs for my residents. And naturally, programs need promotion. As a graphic design major, I figured I'd make this responsibility into a fun design exercise. I vowed that I would spend no more than half an hour on each flyer. For the most part, I stuck to it. Some of the designs aren't great -- some are outright sloppy -- but it was an exercise in hard and fast design, so I think it's a valuable project anyway.
