For this project we have to design an A2 poster on a certain subject to visually communicate its idea and a set of data relating to it. The idea needs to be communicated to the audience with very few to no words on it, purely visually. I like this task as it gets us to try to convey a message without using any words and encourages a very design and artistic based assignment. We were given a few subjects to choose from and I chose the subject ‘How many documented meteor impacts have there been?’ as I had a few good ideas that I could do.
I went to http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/metbull.php to find the data I needed for the poster and through that found a world map with recorded meteor impacts that I would use to help design my poster.
