Final: Information Design


Holley Aaron

For our topic we chose the Underground Comix movement. Our posters include: Robert Crumb's timeline of comix, the Underground Comix in the United States, and the levels of explicit content in the Underground Comix. Robert Crumb was instrumental in the development of Underground Comix, so covering his works over the height of the movement seemed crucial to the informational map. The underground comix movement mainly occured in the United States, so the poster only covers the major areas where the comics were popular. The explicit content poster discusses the levels of raunchiness found in the various comics. To unify the group project we kept the same color palette and comic book fonts.
