Opposite Posters

This amazing series of opposite posters were created by design students at the School of Visual Art in New York City.

For three hours every Monday, the students in the spring semester class worked in the Chermayeff & Geismar studio developing and designing logos for M&T Bank, a client that the partners selected, while concurrently balancing smaller side projects, like the "Opposites" poster assignment. For "Opposites," they had to choose two opposing issues, objects, or concepts, and then represent their relationship in a memorable 11" by 17" poster. The posters challenged students to be conceptual thinkers, to simplify, and to consider visual impact -- the skills required for the especially conceptual task of developing a corporate identity.

The above poster was created by Chris Albarano.
