I did a little research on the pieces of the description that is listed with the course and a lot of the imagery I found online showed radio signal lines and interruptions of data or complex data charts. After looking at imagery to better understand the subject I decided that it would be cool to design a poster that was abstract, colorful, and showed abstractly the movement of data and data being interrupted and bouncing off of objects. I believe the typography could use a little more work, because to me it looks too flat, but considering I only had a few hours to come up with the design, I am fairly proud of the design.
One of requests for the flyer was that it would look good if students opened the email on their phones. I have included a image in the slideshow above that shows what the message looks like on a phone.
