Prompt: Create a graphic to be used for the Goldstein Museum Exhibit of Ikat Textiles. Graphics to be used for poster, large hanging banner, postcard, and website header.

Solution: Bright colors draw viewers in from afar. A strong hierarchy of text ensures that important information about the event is legible. Colorful, thin lines together are woven together in reference to the process of ikat textile creation and to create visual interest.

Process: The title of the event becomes a graphic element, incorporated into the warp and the weft of a digital weave. Fragmented letters become shapes that mimic Puerto Rican ikat textile patterns (see inspiration at bottom of page). The colors were selected based on photos provided by the client.
