The final semester in the CMU Graphic Design program is spent in a capstone, preparing a cohesive show that showcases not only each individual's skills, but the skills of the entire class. As a class, we brainstormed concepts and approaches to the capstone show, each coming up with our own unique idea.
After narrowing down ideas, we had three main themes to choose and work within. I choose to develop the “Together by Design” concept, coming up with connections as the overarching theme. I illustrated the poster with four hands using string to make cats cradle. The string is a literal representation of the ties and connections we make. I also animated the hands pulling the strings.
