Project Description

Three 15-by-20-by-1-inch posters commemorating the largest impact craters on Earth. Each poster is constructed from ten layers of museum board. The posters display accurate topographic features as well as supplementary data for each structure.

Production Lesson(s)

This piece took a great amount of planning. Each museum board has a unique die cut which had to be hand drawn from multiple maps and then vectorized. When stacked the layers create depth. This was something I had never done nor seen done with a poster. To layer, each board was xyron-ed to make it a sticker. Placing and aligning the boards was very tedious. The result made it all worth while though!”
