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  therefore plenty of potential to make an leaflet with lots of information but also to produce a distilled simpler poster.
