The Poster

We began creating our poster by using the image from the invites to keep it all flowing and relevent. This helps people to understand what our work is about. As the invite had a welsh translation, we thought it would be a good idea to keep the same text, rather than needing it re-translated again further down the line. We watermarked the image, making it more transparent so the text would show through.

First draft of the poster: Text too small and barely visible, not quite a poster layout.

Tony's draft of adding some colour.

Tony's draft of adding more colour and making the text white and larger so it is more visible. Not too keen on the colours of the lines of colour, needs to be more neutral.
Our finished poster with the help of Liz using photoshop, Megan, Sammi and I sat with Liz and discussed what the outcome should be. She helped us in particular with how posters should like and what the should tell the viewer.
The white opaque box allows the text to sit on the surface much better and makes it easier to read.
Now we have our poster we can put them up around college, in town and pop some into the galleries too.
