I designed this lecture series poster as an assignment for my Typography II at the University of Texas. The graphic is inspired by traditional Japanese joinery. Joinery is studied by most architects during their academic career as a fundamental element of design. Taking the basic block shape and rotating it at 60 degree intervals mimics a classic shape of joinery that would be familiar to the viewers of this poster. The choice of color is a riff on the color used on old architectural blueprints. My typography choices were essentially utilitarian— a bold modern headline, paired with a readable body.
