This presentation poster was part of the SIAT showcase at the Simon Fraser University’s Open House in spring 2008. I was tasked with designing a poster to present our project and ideas to the open house guests. I decided to go with try out a playful and innocent style for the graphics, a play on the Polynesian saying: “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”. You can check out this door-sized poster here.

I worked with the idea of having a “road to sustainability” that lead to the top. Although the poster was read top-to-bottom and going away from sustainability might seem backwards, what I wanted to convey here is that we still have a long way to go in improving our environment. I drew inspiration from Tado and went on to create my own little world on the poster.
