Deconstruct and visualize a memorable thrill ride in a poster format using expressive type and original imagery to convey the essence of the experience.

Your design might explore temporal aspects of the experience, or your emotional response (before, during or after). It could reflect sensory aspects of the physical experience—speed, movement, gravity, torque, wet, dry, hot, cold, dark, light, deafening roars or eerie silence. You might investigate the ride’s allure for you, or the nature of anticipation and hyperreality.

Think about how the use of color, perspective, composition and expressive typography can add dimension, emotion and a sense of movement to your composition. Have fun and bring the THRILLS!!
