The Department of Architecture at the University of Johannesburg would host a six lecture series featuring innovative practitioners from across Gauteng who are shaping the profession in unique ways. To advertise the series they required a main poster introducing the series and speakers. The main poster was followed by six individual posters advertising each lecture.
The aim was to find one conceptual graphic which can represent the entire lecture series, but one that can be broken up into different pieces to represent the individual lectures. A graphic of an explosion was chosen as it can represent the action of rebuilding a city whilst being a metaphor for great ideas. The main poster was covered with colourful explosions with each individual poster showing one explosion.
