Words and images are processed in different parts of the brain. Images are more likely to be remembered and we process them more quickly. It's often easier to convey an abstract concept with words, but images help convey emotions, tell stories, and illustrate processes.
Get comfortable with the basics of PhotoShop or another image editing program (one that can do what's in step 3: EDIT below).
Inspiration (below) - 20 classic posters
Produce a poster that could be used with a class in your discipline: advertise an event (real or imaginary - maybe an exhibit of student work), promote the course, or explain a concept. Use PhotoShop or other software* that allows you to work in layers.
Keep all raw materials until you receive confirmation of earning this badge.
* You may use The GIMP, Adobe Illustrator, or other image editing software, but it must allow you to do what's required in step 3: EDIT and step 4: DOCUMENT..
