Tommaso Minnetti and Pasquale Volpe held their Good 50x70 Poster Workshop on Friday, September 25 and Saturday, September 26 with 30 MSU students at the School of Art. Blitzing through concepts and finished comps in two days, this group worked together to produce poster ideas to help raise awareness about suicide prevention.
Students worked up ideas on paper and presented loose concepts to Tommaso and Pasquale before moving into the production phases of their posters.
