We Want Our Rights.

For this college design project, we were to create a broadside poster of the Bill of Rights—the first ten amendments to the US Constitution. Back in the day, broadside posters were used as posters, announcing events or proclamations, commentary in the form of ballads, or simply advertisements. I saw this as an opportunity to created an experimental version of the Bill of Rights—with a concept.

Since the United States is a melting pot of people—with different backgrounds and beliefs—I wanted to play with the idea of the Bill of Rights poster unifying us all into one. I wanted to show two opposites working together to create a unified system. That’s when I came up with the idea of creating a black and white poster that connects on all sides—two sides to the same coin so-to-speak.

Broadside Poster

The poster needed to somehow have a way of continuing forever—as the Bill of Rights has done throughout the United States’ history. I was challenged with making a poster connect on every side. After several sketches and layout ideas, I create a layout that would work in that particular manner.

After creating the poster, I realized that there could be multiple purposes for the poster. Other than just being a single poster, It could also be used as a wrap for just about any product—even wallpaper for a conference room at an attorney’s office—as seen in the photo.
