Definitions (in my own words)

- personification: when an object is given human like qualities 
ex. a flower that talks

- hyperbole: when something is extremely exaggerated 
ex. a million flowers to prove you love gardening 

- punhumorous play on words or images that emphasize or create different meaning 
ex. Laven der weather today (with an image of Lavender)

- antithesis: opposite things shown together, juxtaposing things to create meaning 
ex. a flower with a tree truck to show it's strength 

- irony: use of words that mean the opposite of what they typically mean in culture, by combining things with similar characteristics 
ex. flower that grows into the earth rather than out of it

- metonomy: a detail, or piece of something that stands in as a symbol for a greater concept
ex. flower pedals representing "he loves me, he loves me not"

- synechdoche: when something stands in as a symbol for a larger group of people or concept
ex. a rose representing love

- metaphor: applying something that doesn't provide literal meaning by combining different things
ex. a flower with guns as pedals representing love

- parody: taking something that already exist in culture and altering it to create meaning

Final Lecture Poster




Robynne Raye has been going through a copyright infringement battle with Target for months now. She's been very open to the public about the case, so for my hypothetical lecture I figured that she would talk about this issue and give advice to art students on how to handle this situation, as well as promoting students to fight for their creative rights. This is where the title comes in, "Fight with Words", Raye wrote in a blog post that this was her best advice to give someone who was in her situation. The overall style of my design is influenced by Raye's bold sense of humor, process, and unusual approach to poster design. All of the typography is very playful and at times punny. The imagery of Vanderslice was found in the garden in front of the green, just to subtly hit on Raye's love for gardening, she's a total flower nerd.
