About the Show

FYI is a Poster Show

FYI examines the world around us through Infographics; a form of visual communication that combines information with typography and presents it in an artistic way.

Visit the poster show at the Seattle Design Festival, a block party event located on John St. in South Lake Union, September 20th - 23rd, 2012. The Seattle Design festival is a forum for design organizations to join forces and celebrate Seattle’s creativity and ingenuity. Other featured exhibits include explorations in human interaction, architecture, film, interactive, industrial, environmental & interior design.

Join us for a variety of food vendors, live music and creativity. More details at www.seattledesignfestival.org

Subject Matter

FYI is a Conversation

All poster content is designed with a purpose; to activate, engage and educate our community. We asked designers to capture, design and illustrate the collective conscience of the world around us and to find interesting, important, useful, outrageous, remarkable and entertaining information to convey it. It’s a great ice breaker.
