I believe that visual aids can allow one to better understand and retain the information being presented, especially when the subject matter can be very technical. In a college astronomy class, I had trouble understanding the material when only reading or listening to the lectures, so I liked to visually map-out the concepts in order to learn them better or to create reference tools. I designed a series of posters using vector art and graphics based on the topics in my astronomy class to help me study. I played with typefaces that I thought would evoke a sense of science or technology, like a futuristic computer showing the findings from collected data, or perhaps even the kind of type that might be on an alien spaceship. I utilized a circular motif in many of these posters to keep a consistent visual language as well as to referece the idea of orbiting objects in space.
