One of our last projects is a group project. We have to discuss modernism vs post-modernism and come up with a way to visually describe them and their differences. My group decided on a big poster, with descriptions of modernism and post-modernism on the bottom and a picture on the top. The picture is going to be of two boxers, one representing modernism and the other representing post-modernism. They will each use techniques and colors relevant to the respective period. Each part of the poster was broken up and each member of the group did a part. I did the description of modernism. I wasn’t quite sure where to go at first, but I am pleased with what I came up with. With the help of my group members, I kept the design clean and simple, using minimal colors to correspond with the boxer depicting modernism.
