Poster Design: Honoring Chilean Miners

This poster design, by Brian Joe Mueller honors the ascent of the 33 men from the Chilean mine shaft. The Fenix2 escape capsule that brought them to the surface was only 21 inches in diameter, and the poster shows that, literally. The large circle is the circumference of the rescue capsule.

The miners names are listed across in the order in which they were hoisted from the mine and labeled with the time. Brian is a graphic design student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
