''100 PEOPLE A YEAR CHOKE TO DEATH ON BALL-POINT PENS''

Information Design: Making a phone call, getting to work/university, crossing the road, online browsing, watching a DVD and mp3 navigation 'The list goes on' These are just a few everyday actions that we undertake without giving a second thought as to how they are actually conceived, until now. Do we value the wealth of information we take in as human beings on a day-to-day basis and do we value the wealth of visual information we take in as Graphic Designers? How important is the gestation of information, visual or otherwise...

Brief: You are asked to produce a poster A2 in size, that will take the form as an information design lead artwork. This artwork will be a creative response to a given fact. The information must be presented in a interesting and engaging nature. ''Be Creative''. How the date is presented will reflect you as a graphic designer and visual problem solver.

''ADDRESS NOT FOUND - DEATH OF THE INTERNET''

Your challenge for this workshop as Graphic Designers ''Image-Makers'' is to create a single [A2 IN SIZE] print-based artwork in response to the working title: ''Address Not Found - Death of the Internet''

As the final outcome is a single artwork, presentation and composition are paramount.
Make sure this is considered in the design.
Think how you are going to construct the artwork and how this reflects the work you make.
