I haven't been able to submit work to the Bootcamp class with Lilla Rogers.
We are now in month 3 and this is my first submission.(I've missed two...)
The assignment for April: design a poster for the real life 'Make Art That Sells' event in June in Brighton, England. The color palette and the text were given.
The rest was up to you. A fun assignment for a real event.
This is my design:
I've never been to Brighton, so I googled what kind of place it is. It's on the seaside with a boulevard. The Brighton Dome, where the event takes place is huge, it looks a bit like a building in a fairytale.
The image which catched my eye immediately was this one:
An enormous ferris wheel which I thought would be a nice idea to use as a methaphor for a gathering. Combined with my love for faces in all various colors to express the global part of the event. I chose yellow for the wheel, so it can also be the sun.
(Let's hope it will shine when this event takes place...;-))
Here are the faces I designed for the poster:
When I was searching on the internet to find pictures of Brighton, I stumbled upon a photo of the Brighton Swimmingclub in 1853! It was not useful for my design, but I love it to find pictures like this, when I'm looking for something else. It made me smile :-)
This assignment is also a competition. All Bootcampers make a poster for this event. There will be one winner. I make myself no illusions because I'm sure there will be lots of great designs to choose from. I worked with joy on this design!
