even riots in which several people were
killed. The furor reached new heights when Iran's
Ayatollah Khomeini joined in, proclaiming the
The Satanic Verses (1988)

the world that the author of the Satanic
Verses book which is against Islam, the
Prophet and the Koran, and all involved in
its publication who were aware of its
content , are sentenced to death.

Hey! Dont ride me off the poster!
At the camp I learned to work with a team, both
directly and indirectly. Sometimes we were all
working closely together planning a project, but
other times we were all working in our own way
toward the same goal. Both types of interaction .

Lettering
  • All lettering should be legible from 3 feet away
    older viewers should not have to put on reading
    glasses. . .
  • This is 18 point type, the smallest size you
    should use.
  • This is 24 point type. Better?

19
Lettering
  • It is fun to use different fonts
  • (one or two different fonts otherwise it gets too
    confusing)
  • It is fun to use lots of colors
  • (one or two different colors otherwise it gets
    too confusing)
  • Use simple fonts

Lettering
Sorry to make you read all this!
  • MOST PRINT IN NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, AND BOOKS IS
    IN LOWER-CASE LETTERS (EXCEPT FOR THE
    CAPITALIZATION OF PROPER NAMES AND THE INITIAL
    WORD IN A SENTENCE). LOWER-CASE LETTERS GENERALLY
    ARE REGARDED AS MUCH EASIER TO RECOGNIZE THAN
    WORDS PRINTED ONLY IN CAPITALIZED LETTERS.
  • Most print in newspapers, magazines, and books is
    in lower-case letters (except for the
    capitalization of proper names and the initial

    are regarded as much easier to recognize than
    words printed only in capitalized letters.

21
Editing (deleting off extra text)
  • Edit ruthlessly
  • Discard details
  • Make the shortest statement possible
  • Simple messages are more memorable

A poster should have 20 TEXT, 40 GRAPH-ICS and
40 EMPTY SPACE
40 GRAPH-ICS
40 EMPTY SPACE

Editing
  • Now, how would you edit this?

    al-Kadhim (A), prophesizes the appearance of the
    leader of the Islamic Revolution and one of the
    greatest scholars of the Shi'i school of thought
    in the 20th century, Imam Khomeini (R).
