Design West Michigan and The Fed Galleries @ KCAD present:
Collage as a Process for Poster Design: A Workshop by Skolos + Wedell

The creative act of collage can provide endless inspiration for graphic designers. Everything in a designer’s vocabulary—words, ephemera, materials, colors, and contexts—can be recombined to create unique visual and verbal phenomena. These unexpected formal arrangements engage both our minds and our eyes, and challenge our preconceptions.

For Nancy Skolos and Tom Wedell, collage is a fruitful starting point for many of their collaborative projects. The fluidity of collage assists in the formal configuration of a subject and also sparks symbolic associations, not privileging one over the other but allowing both to grow in tandem.

In this highly interactive workshop, Skolos and Wedell will enable participants to create their own collage-based poster design as they encounter form and content as malleable, think beyond their preconceptions to activate space and unleash meaning, and experience the give-and-take of a fluid creative process.

This workshop is free and open to the public, but attendees must RSVP via Eventbrite to reserve a spot.
