Featuring more than 45 works, the exhibition “Design is change” shows how FIU citizen designers – teaming up with non-profit organizations—have applied principles of composition, design and storytelling to create posters that make a positive social impact in our community. On view at MBUS from March 23rd through April 14, 2017. The exhibition is organized by Silvia Pease, designer and educator at FIU.
The exhibition shows FIU designers making a viewer take notice of their global message by placing a central element, using form and color; using multiple patterns; typography as form; illusions of depth; transforming images and 3-d objects, cutting and pasting; including visual narratives; provocative language to communicate the urgency of the message; humor and tension; scale manipulation; diagonals and transparencies.
