These are the aforementioned posters I have been putting up around Cooper Union for my new class Architecture Appreciation. The class will go on field trips around New York exploring new and historic landmarks and architectural gems. The posters were both made in InDesign, using photographs I had taken on a field trip I took my other Cooper Union class on (Architecture Through a Mixed Media Lens). The fonts used include Braggadocio and Arial and I played with the sizes and colors of the strokes and fills to change the appearance. For example, the ‘The Cooper Union Continuing Education’ line is actually Arial but with a very thick stroke outlining to make it stand out. One of the interesting things about InDesign is that it lets you use gradients for the stroke not just the fill. The poster on the right uses a gradient stroke to outline ‘Architecture Appreciation’. It’s always fun making posters; they get ‘built’ much faster than buildings!
