Bus Safety Poster Assignment

October is Bus Safety month. There are too many contests and exhibition opportunities to do them all, but since my students have to learn bus safety anyway, a bus safety contest seemed like a good time to talk about how graphic designers use images to communicate a message. I wish I had been able to spend a day discussing typography and composition, but we did have a good discussion about the importance of making your idea stand out from the rest. Sometimes,  more limitations require more creativity. 

And for students who are just trying to figure out what a bus looks like, given their lack of vision, there is room for learning that as well. Be safe everyone, and remember that the red lights mean STOP! Just because you can see a student, it doesn't mean they can see you.
