Type Specimen Poster: How to Begin to Imagine an Interactive Experience for a Poster Design

The type specimen poster project is a favorite project among graphic design students at East Carolina University. 

This semester, with the uncertainty of available resources for large-format printing, we introduced a new assignment, the interactive type specimen poster. This project included a hands-on prototyping activity to conceptualize the visual design, layout, and interactive features of the interactive poster. Instructional videos for working through this process are included below.
