A playful Pokémon Go poster created by ACU graduate Amelia Carnagey for her classroom has gone viral on social media platforms.
Carnagey, who earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and Three-Dimensional Studio Art in 2014, now teaches print design and illustration classes at Texas State Technical College in Abilene.
Her satirical poster warns that if she catches a student playing in class, she will play the game on the student’s phone and lose on purpose. Consequences escalate from using all the student’s pokeballs on the first offense, to transferring their most valuable Pokémon monster on the third offense.
“The poster was made as a joke for my students,” Carnagey said. “I wanted to see what their reaction would be and then actually spur a conversation with them.”
