This series of promotional items was intended to promote the student’s annual show of the MFA Design Class of 2003 in the “Internal Museum” class. This year’s show had the “body” as a theme and “98.6 F/ 36.6 C” as a title of the exhibit, which is temperature of the Human Body both in Celsius and Fahrenheit. From here comes the concept of the promotional items. The body is embracing the egg in different delicate positions to give it its temperature. The egg is broken in the final poster announcing the opening of the event. Human feet marks are shown walking away from the egg.[nbsp /]

Tools used
Photoshop® was used as a start to retouch the original photos taken. The photos were cropped and cut out of their backgrounds. The images were then given a duotone effect. These images were imported to Illustrator® where all the type was incorporated. The vector shaped broken egg [lbrack /]in small on back of the invitation card[rbrack /] was also done in Illustrator. The human feet marks were created in Adobe Streamline® out of an actual photo and imported to Illustrator. The broken egg photo in the big poster was retouched, since the broken egg photo was taken independently and then used Photoshop to take the egg over the invitation form
