Storytelling takes many forms and visual storytelling through poster design is one of our favorites. Found on subways, bus stops, billboards, and bulletin boards, posters can, with one image or a series of images, invite a viewer into a world and indeed a narrative. Be it for a book, movie, play, or even a product, a poster can be a delightfully concise invitation to all kinds of stories. What would a poster of your favorite vacation spot look like? How about your favorite ice cream? This summer, we invite you to create a poster of your own with this Learning Lab activity from Cooper Hewitt Educators. Have fun!
