The image above is the first poster design for rationale 2. I tried to make use of elements of the saxophones shape as ways to place the information clearly but simply for the audience to read. Rationale 2 is all about using as little information as possible in the poster whilst leaving the essential information for people to find out about the event.
I also tried to make it more summery using bright colours, water colour paint and drawing in a daisy chain around the saxophone. I think this works fairly well.
This is a linocut print of a saxophone which I’ve drawn text over with a black fine liner. The size of the print was limited by the size of lino which I had, hence it’s an A4 print sat within an A3 sized piece of paper.
I think this worked much better in theory than in practice. I had thought creating the poster using a printing method would add nice texture, but I think it’s actually quite hard to read the text on the top.
Which poster do you guys prefer and why?
What could I do to improve the design?
