A campus-based Social Networking System (SNS) has been newly designed and implemented to realize network-based smart community like domain-oriented SNS for collaborative design and decision making in a relatively short period. It can play a role to provide information sharing and communicating. For the sake of building large-scale poster for college promotion and the publicity of entrance examination, we must build up such a poster by means of our the above information sharing and communicating system. We have taken some photos for candidates of poster, put them on exhibition with our system, and shared them with the determining committee's members on the system. This paper reports our system configuration and its application to real task of poster design. The system can play a role of such a design bed and communicating environment of collaborative design and decision making. With our system, we can perform the real collaborative design for poster creation in a short period. Its performance let the collaborative design and decision making more fruitful.
