Bear River Writers' Conference—2010
The Bear River Writers’ Conference, presented by the University of Michigan, is an annual writing workshop/collaboration located in northern Michigan's Hemingway country. The conference is defined by its own particular geography, situated as it is at the intersection of the natural and creative worlds. Populated by an eclectic collection of writers of all levels of experience, it offers community members a hiatus from daily routine and the chance to find a space for themselves and their words.
This project involved the creation of a large format promotional poster which would also serve as an informational brochure. For 2010 this also involved a redesign of previous format to give the piece a more natural and unified look. Photography selection was limited to work submitted by conference goers. As such, a particularly challenging aspect of this project was manipulating images that were not necessarily suited for printing at a large size, nor homogenous in color hues or saturation levels, to look like they were.
