I think that the mathematics awareness month poster works really well. The color choice, orange, grabbed my attention right away and brings a lot of energy to the poster. I believe that the graphic design of the question mark and face brings an interesting touch to the subject matter. The information is clearly displayed and placed in an organized manner. I think when looking at this poster, the reader is urged to read on, which demonstrates a great poster design.
On the other hand, I do not think the national poetry month poster is very effective at all. Although it was creative by forming a poets face with the typography, I think it is too much and too clustered together. The typeface is also pretty hard to read and way too small. There is nothing on the poster that makes me want to read more and find out what it is, which shows that this poster was not created very well.
