Although I couldn’t attend, I am co-author with Fran Jurga (hoofcare.com) on a poster being presented at the “2011 International Equine Conference on Laminitis and Diseases of the Foot” in Florida. I also got to help Daisy Bicking (of Daisy Haven Farm) design two posters for the event — both are about fixing lameness in horses (using composite materials, using medical grade maggots) and are shown below.
For those of you outside of the horse world, “lame” means “weak boned,” and is the ancestral meaning of the word. “Lame” as a commentary about inadequacy came later, around WWII. E.g.., “that was a totally lame pun.”
(Photograph courtesy Daisy Bicking.) I did them in Apple Keynote, if you care, and are sized at 36 x 48″ to show off Daisy’s nice photography. They both found me via my page, “Designing conference posters.” I don’t have a photograph of my poster yet.
