The Power Structure Poster
Purpose: to show to the reader which positions have power in the city, explain that position's role, and how people can obtain power in the city.
The poster should look somewhat like an old school propaganda poster. Thing WW2 or even Bioshock (video game) posters. We have created the general layout of the poster and its overall design. The imagery of each group (aside from department of smoke) can be changed. The text explaining each group will be altered as we go, but is close to finished. Below is a break down of each section you will see of the attached image:
-Power: This image on the left side of the poster shows how much power each group has. It's like a graph.
-The General: A General (dictator) rules the American city. Feel free to change the emblem. You can use American Military imagery or something of the sort.
-The Mask: You should go with a mask as the image. Just make it look powerful...don't make it look sexual, not our thing.
-The Silvers: The existing image is dumb. You are genius. We believe in you.
-Inner Circle: Ditto.
The City Guard: This one needs to be filled with American Army ranks. I suggest googling the ranks and assuring it all makes sense. I suggest the "enlisted" ranks as that makes more sense to the book.
Edingburg Section: So this part requires some understanding. "Edingburg" is a ghetto in the city. It is ruled by the "Inner Circle." If you're from Edingburg the only way to get into the inner circle is to pass some tests. So it's important to have an interesting illustration that shows that in a visual way. Get creative with this, it's important to show the duality.
Business: There's too much of a break down on size of businesses. Basically, it needs to be simplified from small to big company. I'd change the look of that section.
Social Media Presence: same goes for that. I'd start with the rank of "nobody" to "trending"
The Elected/mayor section in the middle is the most important. We will also need an area of text to explain it and to draw an arrow showing that the mayor of edingburg can sit with the "masks."
The Man's Path to Power: This can be made to look better
The Woman's Path to Power: Ditto
The Department of Smoke: Just make it look like the image and leave a text area to explain it.
-It has to look like a propaganda poster in a book, so you may have to get creative on that. Perhaps a wall behind it or something, but space is limited in order to assure the reader can easily see everything.
Note that the proportions on the map grid are not perfect. You'll have to adjust a lot of this.
