Static Image Communicating ideas


1.7 Create a Visual Text (Static Image) - you will design and create a poster based on ONE of the Usagi stories that you have read. The poster must show the audience the idea of HONOUR as you see it in the story.

Examples of Static Image:

Communicating Ideas Through Images


Dominant Image

What is the dominant image in this picture?

How does it draw the audiences attention?

Rule of Thirds

Which images fall into the 'thirds' of this static image?


How has the font been chosen to match the ideas on the page?

White Space

How do you feel about this use of white space? Effective or too much?


What symbol do we see here? What is it aiming to represent?

How might we use symbols to show the idea of 'honour?'


Colour can be used symbolically to communicate an idea


In your book, answer the following questions:

How has this poster divided the image?

How has this poster used colour symbolically? Why do you this the car is black?

Does the font suit the poster? why?

The Task
