Exercise: Too much or not enough information – primary research

I took some time on Friday last week to go to a local park as part of primary research – discovering what events were coming up locally to base my posters on.

I took some photo’s of boards in the park with info about upcoming events:

Lot’s of these events were already being promoted through posters, and I thought this might be distracting/make it hard for me to create something of my own design. I noticed a website with information about what was on in Coventry run by the council so noted it.

I found a link to a series of upcoming events called ‘Bands in the Parks 2013’:


I think this would make a good event to produce the two posters for, as it’s an event with multiple dates, multiple bands, different venues ┬átherefore plenty of potential to make an leaflet with lots of information but also to produce a distilled simpler poster.
