“On the gallows tree, all men are brothers” -A Feast For Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book Four) by George R. R. Martin
This the poster I created yesterday for a car wash my Film Production class are holding in order to raise funds. We will print them as flyers (and be those annoying people) to put on cars, and also as posters to put around the campus. I chose greyscale as we will be printing these in large numbers, and being a student and all, it is a wiser choice considering printing costs.
The hands and the ‘Prime Quality Seal’ badge are from retrovectors.com. They are brilliant when in need of inspiration!
This is a poster for a bake sale that my film class will be holding. We have to raise as much funds to support the production of our short film. It will be going into pre-production very soon, as filming is set to take place mid February. I will keep you updated on how our progress goes!
We will also be holding a car wash, and I am hoping to create and sell christmas cards etc to also help raise money, so no doubt there will be posters for those being made very soon.
This week in Graphic design we learnt about the popularity of the red, black and white colour combination in Graphic Design, and why it is so effective. Our task was to create posters for the New York City Ballet using these colours, photographs only, and no illustration.
I do not own the rights to these images.
I did this in exactly the same way I did the Dita Von Teese image by tracing over the letters of the word ‘Sky’ in Illustrators boring default font that is Myriad Pro in regular. I then used my imagination to create something a bit more interesting and decorative using just a 0.5 fine liner. Once I had finished I scanned it in, live traced it in photoshop to neaten it up, and after playing about in photoshop for a while I ended up with this…
This week in Graphic Design class, we learnt about the art movement, Constructivism. Many people consider it to be directly linked to Russian propaganda posters, but this was not Alexander Rodchenko’s intention when he was first creating his artwork in this style. Using constructivism in propaganda posters was actually used after, mainly because the geometric shapes, use of red, white or cream, and black, suited the messages they wanted to send out so well.
Our task for the lesson was to create an event poster in the constructivism style, and use the same colours. This was mine, and I chose to do a gig poster for one of my favourite bands, Deftones. This is not a real date for a gig, I entirely made this up for my task, and I used Adobe Illustrator.
