History of the Poster

Mon 3rd Oct

In the same groups, our next task was to research a subject we were given. Ours was:

Between the World Wars: Modernism and Art Deco c. 1920

  • Constructivism / El Lissitsky
  • Rodchenko
  • Art Deco / A.M.

We had an hour to create a powerpoint presentation about the designers work. We researched a lot into who they were, what were their influences and who they’ve worked for. After presenting the power point, one thing that was picked up was that there was more description of context rather than the actual aesthetics of the poster. This is something for me to bare in mind when doing my artist research – to focus more on what I like about the work rather than the artist/designer.
