Modern Kraft Poster

Just to get back into the swing of things, we had to create a poster for a Graphic Design Convention called Modern Kraft, we were given a size of 600mm x 265mm with a 3mm bleed all round. We were given the dates of the convention and the location, any other information that we wanted to put on the poster was at our own discretion.

The first poster that I created had an abstract feel to it, the colours were warm and vibrant with the aim of catching passing traffic with the colours, (the criteque of the class when they saw this poster was that they thought it looked like Aboriginal Art due to the colours, the typefaces used needed more work to portray the message. (This could have been enhanced more if we weren't restricted to using only the typefaces found on the computers at TAFE).

The second poster I use tonal colours, and I have since softened the colours by using the opacity and changing the typeface. I have also done this in varying colours to achieve a different ambience to the pink.
