Jenny Venn is the graphic design instructor at the University of Wyoming. I have taken 6 classes from her and her classes have really helped me to have a passion for for concept development and research. One of the projects from her Graphic Design II class is a Social Justice poster series based on historical styles. This project was one that really helped me know that I don't want to do traditional graphic design work but rather focus on social issues and use my graphic design skills in conjunction with my drawing and other work. Some of my work inspired by her poster project.
The poster below is a design that Jenny did for the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice. To see more of her work, check out her blog.
