The poster is handmade, made from patterned paper, coloured card, pen drawings. I don’t currently feel confident enough with Photoshop/Adobe Creative Suite to use them to create the posters, hence it’s been made by hand.You’ll probably notice the design is not perfect, please feel free to suggest alternative ways of approaching the brief/making the poster.
I took inspiration for the design of this poster, in terms of shapes and layout of the text and images from this poster design:
You’ll notice I didn’t use the same colours as the 1950’s poster, I felt that they looked too dated. I used blue,red,white together mainly because I thought they would work well together without overwhelming the viewer, however I’m not sure the colour scheme is the best for promoting a summer event and it does look quite patriotic which could be confusing seeing as the event isn’t specifically a patriotic or ‘British’ event. I would be keen to hear what colour scheme you would have used/think would be more effective.
Please leave any comments you wish to on the design – you can comment on the text used, the information, the colours, the way the design was made etc. I will use your comments to decided how to improve the poster and fulfill the rationale.
Thanks again for helping!!
