MICHIGAN FIBER FESTIVAL

 

 

After researching the Michigan Fiber Festival I chose to use illustrative devices to visualize aspects of the fiber craft to educate an audience unfamiliar with fiber craft techniques. Additionally, the importance of the “farm to fiber” culture is present in the design, to enlighten, even those who enjoy the craft, of its deeper roots.

The challenge of this design was to work beyond visuals of old women knitting. The research was pivotal is unearthing other connotative forms  to represent this event, I found that they put a lot of work into educating attendees and that became my goal of the poster as well.
