Adventures in the Land of Excess Copy

Designed in Adobe Illustrator CS3; font: Futura Standard

Flier for an upcoming lecture, presented in greyscale for value-mapping purposes. The dark grey background fill represents the boundaries of the artboard, which is 11" x 17". Typesetting and layout took much longer than I had expected, mostly due to my being unable to settle the placement and appearance of the abstract linear design on the top left, which will eventually be made into clipping masks for a series of photographs.

Despite my efforts, the margins I used (Van de Graaf canon) simply couldn't accommodate all the copy, which, as you can see, ended up spilling over the bottom. Fortunately, there's still plenty of space for various sponsors' logos.
