Posters are designed to be both eye-catching and convey information. They are a frequent tool of advertisers (particularly of events, musicians and films), propagandists, protestors and other groups trying to communicate a message. Typically posters include both textual and graphic elements, although a poster may be either wholly graphical or wholly text.

B-Society is a real Danish institution, created with the intention of raising awareness and providing support for B-Type people. Basically a B-Type individual is someone whose sleep pattern is dramatically different to the recognised ‘norm.’ This is something they are unable to change, and so forcing them to work within a rigid 9-5 culture has a negative effect on their wellbeing and work output. B-Types are generally artists, designers and writers.

And a few sentence from author:
“As part of the digital photography module, we had to design a poster that advertises the BSc (Hons) Multimedia Technology & Design degree at the University of Kent, Canterbury. I came up with the idea of using squares after thinking about how we look through a window. I wanted an abstract feel, which would tie in with the “and design” aspect of the degree programme. The point of the whole abstract approach to this was to let the viewer know that you have to use your brain and fill in the blank gaps yourself; in the way you feel they should be filled in. You travel the journey through the three years, but how you do it, and what you do, are up to you. The text “imagine, visualise, design, construct, create” at the bottom that I created sum up the whole journey; and at the end of that journey, that there isn’t really any end, it’s just more black blank gaps for you to do your own thing and be creative”.
Very nice and simple “feel good” posters with dose of inspiration and motivation.
