This week, we were to create a hierarchy poster using facts about ourselves. Hierarchy shows an order of importance using typography, order, color, alignment, and scale. For my poster, I wanted to show some of the interesting┬áplaces that I have traveled to.┬áMy list went like this…

10 places I’ve traveled:

  1. Mexico
  2. Costa Rica
  3. Germany
  4. France
  5. South Africa
  6. England
  7. Dubai
  8. Ireland
  9. Italy
  10. Oman

Next, I had to decide how I was going to organize my poster. I did how far each trip took traveling from New Jersey. I organized it from the shortest to longest plane rides. Placement was difficult and finding an image size that fit everything that I wanted to have on my poster. It helped being able to sketch it out first on paper, and then putting my idea onto Photoshop.

Next up was finding the pictures that would be used, and what colors and typography would look best in the layout. I went with black, white, and green for the text so that it would stand out. I used the paint bucket to make all of the places black.

This was my final result…

I would make the outside of the poster maybe a light shade of gray so that it’s easier to see where the poster starts and ends. I would also make the text a darker color so it stands out more. Overall, I am happy with the result of my work. It was stressful when positioning everything, but after figuring it all out I was happy with the layout.
