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.

Added other details and design.

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