Project Description

This poster was created to fulfill a project for the MAET course in London. The assignment’s purpose is to produce an audience grabbing scientific poster showing multiple digital skills, with attention to design and information. This poster explores the topic of asexual reproduction in a common fungus, Aspergillus fumigatus. The purpose of the work is to explain the cycle of reproduction while introducing proper terminology and anatomy of the growth stages. Complex terms are introduced alongside visuals to ensure a better understanding of each stage. The assets are based on microscopic images to ensure a high quality of realism and accuracy. Each item on the poster has been created in the 3D medium, blender, to give the objects a sense of depth, since the majority of these structures are usually only visible on slides. A poster, where all of the stages are visible together, is the best format for demonstrating and comparing the stages of the cycle.
