Poster Research

I want to work off the rule of uniforms for this project. The medium allows for clean cut designs that I think would compliment the design and history of uniforms. I’m interested in the modern approach to uniforms that public figures like Steve Jobs, Carrie Donavan, and Janelle Monae. The idea and reason behind modern uniforms is that wearing the same thing or having a rule to determine daily wardrobes saves time and thought that could be put towards something else. Historically, risograph posters have hosted war slogans and images of soldiers in their uniforms suggesting prestige. They also had messages to encourage the public to reuse their scraps of old clothing and how to do so. I want to combine the modern and historic ideas in my poster.
