project » Teaching the Civil War

This project included a print and web version. The print version, shown here, is a 24 inch by 36 inch poster to be distributed across the country to history teachers to use in their classrooms.

The challenge was to combine many images into a coherent illustration, and allow for insertion of questions to prompt student interaction.

To date, Teachinghistory has received orders for over 10,000 posters, and the poster and website have received hundreds of mentions in teaching and history blogs.

DELIVERABLES: Concept, photomontage, layout, pre-press production.
