This is a self-initiated project where I set myself the task to produce a range of educational posters for display in secondary schools and sixth-form colleges. I wanted to explore the style of infographic illustration I had developed in my project on Quantum Physics to see if it could work for a variety of audiences. I feel the two posters I have created are appropriate for their intended audiences. They are clear, easy to understand and have the right tone of voice.
This poster has three sections that show how coal is mined, how it is used to make electricity, and how electricity is used at home. Through this poster, I also wish to inform students of the long-term effects of fossil fuel use and what they can do to help reduce our dependency on nonrenewable sources.
This poster shows the water cycle. The supporting text explains where water comes from and where it ends up.
A competition runs every year to design the promotional material for the Bath Fringe Festival. Based on my portfolio, I was part of the shortlist of students who would present work the the festival organisers.
I used illustrations of birds as I felt they were a brilliant signifier for the performers in the festival. Birds come in all shapes, sizes, colours and temperaments. They are the most varied vertebrate on the planet, with an estimated 10,000 living species. They have an exotic array of vocalisations and mating dances and thus are the thespians of the animal kingdom.
See below for photographs of the human-sized birds i built to promote the festival!
Since learning about quantum dynamics at A-level, I've been inspired by the incredible phenomena that take place on the quantum scale. quantum dynamics challenges common sense and strains the mind to think in completely new ways. It is concerned not with solid matter, but with waves of probability, with chaotic rhythms and with the fundamental laws of the universe.
I think the study of quantum physics enriches the life of anyone who takes the time to look into it. I produced this poster to inform and inspire A-level students, in order to stimulate a curiosity that will make them want to expand their study further.
The two posters below describe the double slit phenomena and the experiment that reveals it. For an video explanation of the double slit experiment (not made by me) click here
This poster is a detailed explanation of the Schrodinger's Cat thought experiment, which appears regularly in popular culture but is often understood.
