A beautiful mess.
Above: Michelle’s final poster (24×36 digital file). Final submissions are in and are uploaded to Geotypografika Flickr here. The Logopesto Poster Redux from this year’s intro to graphic design grupetto did not disappoint. The final push was heralded by Michelle’s outstanding efforts, and she inspired her classmates to respond with their own, beautiful messes.
Above: Michelle with her final, unfolded poster. Below, some sample spreads from the ‘narrative’ element of this problem below, plus a giant penis. I am not kidding. Read on.
Above: Michelle’s project in spread format, cover to back-cover.
Above: Liz’s ode to cock rock. Oddly, a favorite of the critiques.
Above: dL’s narrative was especially popular for it’s intricate density.
Above: AJ’s splendid washing machine.

Above: Paige takes the cake. Please see more, much more, Geotypografika Flickr here. Look for more updates from this grupetto soon, there is still the matter of an interesting recycled book project from earlier.
