Another assignment I chose to do was Minimalize Your Philosophy poster for 2.5 stars. I chose to use the quote that I also used on my book cover because it’s a great quote to live by for Isabelle Franklin. It was one of the original quotes I mentioned when beginning to outline who Isabelle Franklin is. The quote is by Marie Curie, one of the most incredible female researchers. Her work means a lot to Isabelle just as this quote does. I had a really hard time coming up with what I wanted to do with in the poster to simply convey the quote. Suddenly it clicked. I wanted to use a person’s silhouette with a thought bubble above the person that contained the quote. When searching through silhouette’s I decided it was important to pay tribute to both my character, Isabelle Franklin, and Marie Curie. I found a quote bubble that fit well with the silhouette I selected and then I put in the quote. I debated between putting the font in white or making it a color to make it pop. I tried both out and decided I liked the white better. I then went through the painful process of selecting a font I actually like. The one I finally chose was in italics and I chose to bold the word “ideas” in order to place more emphasis on the word as it’s the most important thought in the quote.
