We were very pleased with Designeroleks' design. I had given feedback several times and he made several improvements. The process worked well for us. It was difficult to choose a winner.
Did a great job. Everything I asked for. Highly recommend.
Great word template.
Awesome Job once Again!
How gmpmath started their poster journey

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Students in grades 7-12 come to us at the University at Buffalo to take math classes.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We would like a 16 by 20 inch poster that 6th grade math teachers would like to hang in their room. It will lead to questions about volume and surface area because it will have a box that is being filled with small cubes and has stickers/designs on the outside that allow students to figure out it's dimensions. There should be some other shapes being filled, whether in the background or in the main scene. It should be somewhat whimsical, so that students enjoy looking at it - animals of any kind are a hit with the age group if you want to go that way. We will send it to teachers along with some suggestions for some questions they can ask the kids about it. The theme is up to the artist, but should be colorful and busy. The little cubes can be coming from a hand or machine, floating or pouring from the sky. You decide. Maybe a big hand is putting stickers on the box. There should be many little cubes. Important elements are the stickers or design on the sides of the box that allow kids to figure out the dimensions, without actually putting a full grid on the sides. The little cubes should look like cubes, not rectangular, but the box should be rectangular with no square sides. Somewhere, not the main focus, there should be our logo and the words "brought to you by the Gifted Math Program, a program at the University at Buffalo for middle and high school students who enjoy math." With all that said, if you have another idea for a picture that allows students to explore the concepts of volume and surface area in a playful way, we would be open to it.
This is a gift poster for 6th grade teachers in the community who nominate kids for the program. It should be something that they would like to hang in their classrooms for it's underlying math content and for it's beauty. It should also capture the kids' attention and imagination.
