Signage: We are designing an 11"x17" poster for middle schools across Boulder County, advertising our thematic summer academic program. We follow a theme each year; past themes have included Food, Energy, Digital Revolution, Innovation & Impact, and Climate. This summer, our theme is "Fresh Start: Re-Imagining How We Live." Students will be able to look at existing systems (government, education, economic, energy and food resources, technology, etc.) in order to think about modifying or re-creating these systems for a new way of living. We would like the poster to be:
-easy and quick to read, not "busy"
-appealing to very smart, mature middle school students ages 11-13 years old
We would like the overall poster to avoid:
-too many images spread throughout the poster
-image or images of children
We would like the word "Fresh Start" to be highlighted on the poster (perhaps in bigger font; brighter color; etc.) and "Re-Imagining How We Live" to stand out but not be as big as "Fresh Start."
On the poster, we also want four lines to read:
"Dawson Summer Initiative" (larger)
"A Program for High-Achieving Students"
"June 7-July 7, 2017" (dates bolded)
