The furor reached new heights when Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini joined in, proclaiming the He no longer considers himself a Muslim, which makes the book all the more insulting to the members of the faith. He has been reviled by them as an "apostate," one who knows the truth and turns away from it. The traditional Muslim punishment for this is death.

15 Tools Photographs should look inwards (this picture is placed on the right side of the poster because subject is looking inwards into the poster) Hey! Don’t ride me off the poster! Title At the camp: I learned to work with a team, both directly and indirectly. Sometimes we were all working closely together planning a project, but other times we were all working in our own way toward the same goal. Both types of interaction.

16 Example of an over enthusiastic poster-maker Much too much... A man from my progeny will come out of Qum and lead a revolt. His name will be that of Isa. There will rally to him people resembling pieces of iron, not to be shaken by violent winds, unsparing and relying upon God.

17 Tools Use light back grounds The HOLY BOOK

18 Lettering All lettering should be legible from 3 feet away; older viewers should not have to put on reading glasses... This is 18 point type, the smallest size you should use. This is 24 point type. Better?

19 Lettering It is fun to use different fonts ( one or two different fonts otherwise it gets too confusing) It is fun to use lots of colors ( one or two different colors otherwise it gets too confusing) Use simple fonts

20 Lettering MOST PRINT IN NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, AND BOOKS IS IN LOWER-CASE LETTERS (EXCEPT FOR THE CAPITALIZATION OF PROPER NAMES AND THE INITIAL WORD IN A SENTENCE). LOWER-CASE LETTERS GENERALLY ARE REGARDED AS MUCH EASIER TO RECOGNIZE THAN WORDS PRINTED ONLY IN CAPITALIZED LETTERS. Most print in newspapers, magazines, and books is in lower-case letters (except for the capitalization of proper names and the initial word in a sentence). Lower-case letters generally are regarded as much easier to recognize than words printed only in capitalized letters. Sorry to make you read all this!

21 Editing (deleting off extra text) Edit ruthlessly Discard details Make the shortest statement possible Simple messages are more memorable A poster should have 20% TEXT, 40% GRAPH -ICS and 40% EMPTY SPACE 40% GRAPH-ICS40% EMPTY SPACE

22 Now, how would you edit this? This 7th century hadith narrated by Imam Musa al- Kadhim (A), prophesizes the appearance of the leader of the Islamic Revolution and one of the greatest scholars of the Shi'i school of thought in the 20th century, Imam Khomeini (R). Edited version : Hadith by Imam Musa al-Kadhim (A), prophesizes appearance of Imam Khomeini (R). Editing 4 different details deleted

23 Another example: A self made man, refined in manners the Imam had always stressed the performance of religious duties and observance of the Islamic tenets. Edited version: self made man refined in manners stressed Islamic principles Editing Use bullets, shorter sentence, & simpler words

24 Remember: Uncluttered colorful design + Legibility + Simple text + Straightforward layout = a good poster
