Design Notes: Asia Mott

By Asia Mott

My poster resembles a garden to represent the basic and most substantial source of nutrition for enslaved Africans: vegetables. I first focused on sketching and designing a tree in order for the title of my project, “Eating Practices of Enslaved Africans”, to stem from the green leaves. Then, I chose to create depictions of specific vegetables that were main components of their meals, such as potatoes, cabbage, beans, and corn. Overall, the colorful layout of my poster represents a diverse garden and an energetic feeling one feels when her or his eating practices include a significant serving of vegetables.
