Each poster will have a heading band running across the top and a timeline band running across the bottom of the page. The timeline will act as a story board explaining past chapters, present lifestyles and what is to come in the future. An example of what could be a very simple and readable approach is seen below.
A generic base layout will be constructed for each member to use as a template for their poster, a consensus has also been made to use simple silhouette symbols and diagrams.
I've been allocated poster one, the introductory and summary poster relating to the week two tutorial activity - Future Visions and Scenarios. I must identify and explore possible future issues, as a group we have chosen to focus on urbanisation. The first poster will introduce urbanisation, the site of Woodfordia and how sharing could be used to encourage future de-urbanisation. A story will be told through the timeline about the back-history of urbanisation and what needs to happen to support de-urbanisation in the future.
Possible Graphical Layout
Once the posters are in their final stages of completion, a coordination check will take place to ensure consistency across all posters in terms of fonts, sizing, colour schemes and labelling techniques.
