An initial attempt at showing the history of American involvement in the Middle East and how it led to ISIS. Visual is somewhat striking, but not very effective at conveying the narrative, which is also scattered. Poster too wordy.
Simplified treatment of timeline, additional visual motifs to replace text.
Further stratification of opposing visual/ideological elements. Sidebar sections and data points added while some are removed.
An update to the main visual motif of the first poster becomes the focal point.
Getting closer! Another treatment of cause-and-effect motif. Sidebar information removed or integrated.
