Concept Development: Mount Unzen Volcano Poster NatSci

After our discussion in NatSci about Volcanoes our professor gave us a group project. We had to choose one volcano where we have to list down the good and bad effects of the volcano’s eruption.

Our group decided to make a video of a science experiment and a poster.

About Mount Unzen:
– Or Unzendake is an active volcanic group of several overlapping stratovolcanoes, near the city of Shimabara, Nagasaki Prefecture, on the island of Kyūshū, Japan’s southernmost main island and one of Japan’s most active and dangerous volcanoes. it’s also a part of Shimabara Peninsula, which has seen extensive volcanism over millions of years. The oldest volcanic deposits in the region date from over 6 million years ago, and extensive eruptions occurred over the whole peninsula between 2.5 and 0.5 million years ago.

UnzenFirst, using Adobe Illustrator – vectored the Mt. Unzen using this picture above.
1Searched for color combinations and other ideas for our poster’s concept.
Web my hair swatches Volcano Volcanoes_15These 4 images above where used for the poster’s concept idea and color combinations.
3Then I thought of making a lava-ish kind of typography for our poster.


Added some information about the Volcano.
5Then made small icons for each bad and good effect with detail information.


Added other details and design.

Which leads us to our final design for our poster in NatSci.

Dear Francesca

My heart did break when no one in the class stood up to clarify your query in my behalf. I felt like I have miserable failed as a professor and have earned my salary unjustly.  I realize, too, that I should have prepared you more for the teaching style that I wanted to implement. Here is the page where I share the direction of our science class. Thank you for recognising my dream for all of you to become well-rounded learners and knowledge creators — authors, in other words. To quote my speech that day, “my dream is for you not to be just reading about Einstein but for you to be like Einstein, discovering something new which others will study. Thank you for indicating your willingness to try out my invitation to study with the blogosphere in mind; I, too will do my best to adjust my…
