project 1

poster2

 

For this project we were asked to create an 11 x 17 poster with a subversive message.  I took this photograph and the denver aquarium and really wanted to use it as my main image but stared at it for a week unable to see how to fulfill the assignment.  After playing around with photoshop for a bit and not getting anywhere, I started using Illustrator and found it was a little easier and more versatile for my ideas. I like the concept of a simple, contemporary design with one bright color offsetting black and white.  I used repetition of the image for visual interest and movement along with opacity adjustments and layering for depth.  The text is meant to evoke a mixed reaction in that float and purpose have been defined to be somewhat contrasting in meaning.  The message is tread lightly and buoyantly with some intent.  It can reflect humans in relation to the earth and our impact or  just for themselves as a sort of “encouragement” poster you might find hanging some conference room in Corporatetown, USA, but with a more zen-like approach.

    Hi! I think this is an amazing graphic. The juxtaposition of the pink color against the black and white images combined with the description/statement of floating creates a really good composition that makes the viewer think. Great job! Just curious what the number “18” represents?
