Nerdy theoretical CS poster design critique?

Postby moyix » Tue Apr 03, 2012 9:03 pm UTC

I'm almost finished with a poster that shows Turing machine computations visually, as sets of Wang Tiles ( There's a little bit more to it than just visualization -- by following simple placement rules (match colors together) you're actually *performing* the computation; it's even been shown that if you structure DNA molecules as Wang Tiles, they will self-assemble into computations like the ones show here.

Anyway, since this is the first time I've done anything remotely design-related, I'd appreciate comments on the layout, fonts, colors, etc.! I'm currently in the process of redoing the fonts in the legend, as the Python Imaging Library doesn't do hinting/antialiasing very well.


A larger version is here: (hopefully I won't get in trouble for posting that?)

Criticism, however harsh, is welcome :)
