AIGA Poster – Copyright in America

“Few things are more dull and boring than copyright law.” That was my logic going into this assignment for my Advertising class at Samford. Students were tasked with creating a poster for an AIGA speaking event, and our work was to reveal a clear opinion on the topic of the event. I decided that the clearest way to depict the negative effects of copyright in America was to show creativity being funneled into mush. To execute this poster I simply photographed a plastic funnel and then made a rainbow-colored collage of various creative elements: books, records, Andy Warhol art, music notes, etc. I’m very proud of this piece for achieving such clarity of message through a bland subject.
