A series of five educational posters was designed around the subject of flora and fauna of the Mojave Desert. Each poster features a species of vegetation or wildlife, with photography, written research, and design original to this project. The project was intended to function as an environmental awareness tool to engage and inspire others about the native Mojave Desert ecosystem.
Stage 1: Design Problem
Stage 2: Photography
The photography would consist of raw images, captured specifically for this project and be edited using an Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop workflow. The photography would be central to the project and would conform to industry-standard digital photographic processes.
Stage 3: Research
The textural information would consist of original writing that would be the result of research into the flora and fauna featured in the photographs. It would be arranged in a way that provides information but does not distract from the imagery.
Stage 4: Design
The design would be photography-driven, but would also incorporate geometric shapes or text set into each picture to make the graphics appear to be part of the natural layering and depth of the image. The final layout and text was completed in InDesign.
