FINE ART IN SOCIETY - EXHIBITION POSTER DESIGNS
Updated: Nov 13, 2019
VINYL STOCKTON - FINAL POSTER DESIGN
For this poster i decided i needed something very vibrant to match the colours of my work unlike the poster the event themselves had published. So i used an existing collaged print and scanned it in and digitally manipulated it in photo shop before adding text over the top
using the composition of the piece underneath to dictate the composition but not overpower the text. The poster the event issued is not a bad poster but as they were advertising several musicians along with my exhibition and a photographers exhibition it made sense to have a more simple monochromatic poster. So my version in more in line with my style and practice.

VINYL STOCKTON - INITIAL DIGITAL/ RISOGRAPH DESIGN
For this initial poster design i decided not to over complicate the piece so i used one of my existing prints which i made on a risograph press for the exhibition. I chose this particular print because although the composition is simple, the colours of the poster is what makes it really pop. I think this particular print encompasses my practice as it is brightly coloured and links to imagery in religion and mythology eg. the pink nimbus around the figures head and the colour of the figure in reference to the green man. as the image itself is quite dynamic i made the text relatively simple and coordinating the colours. However i later decided that the poster wasnt dynamic and eye catching enough for my taste so i decided to continue experimenting digitally.
VINYL STOCKTON - INITIAL POSTER RISOGRAPH ONLY
Original poster concept for sculpture based exhibition made on a risograph printer made before i opted to make the module print based.
SEAHAM CULTURAL HUB GROUP EXHIBITION - POSTERS AND POTENTIAL TITLES
As we need a group poster for this exhibition i also created one just to advertise my work within my exhibition. I used a risograph print made from collaged materials which was in quite muted colours and scanned it in. I then proceeded to make the text bold and black to stand out from the muted background. A more simple poster seems to work for a group exhibition as their are many different types of work that we plan to exhibit. The poster is also extremely text heavy so having a muted background and a bold font seemed like the best way to stop the information from being lost within the design.
