CLA322: Women in Antiquity (Kvapil): Poster Design

Edit & Combine Images

  • Combine images into diptychs, triptychs, collages, etc. Use borders, filters, cropping, and annotation to make interesting and impactful statements with your images.
  • You do NOT need Photoshop to do image editing for this project (though you are welcome to use it if you're so inclined). There are free web apps and software that are more than powerful enough to do what you need.

Create Your Own Visuals

Think about different ways you can express information visually: do you have statistics or other data that could be represented in a chart, graph, or table? How might you use maps to plot or contextualize information? What about an infographic, timeline, or wordle?

  • Web Apps: easel.ly (charts, graphs, maps), infogr.am (charts, graphs), ZeeMaps (maps), ScribbleMaps, Wordle, Tagxedo (wordles)
  • Software: Excel (Windws / OS X), PowerPoint (Windows / OS X), Numbers (OS X), Keynote (OS X), Google Earth (Windows / OS X / Linux)
  • A screenshot in Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, or Apple Maps goes a long way. OS X has simple screenshot utlities built in, but if you want something easier than "Print Screen" for a Windows machine, try Jing
