Our instructor provided the copy for this project and a selection of possible themes. Since I knew the poster would contain a lot of copy, I wanted to keep the design simple. For this assignment, we were challenged to find a photograph on which to base our poster design. The class was also challenged to use a limited number of colors.
Finding the Photo
After much searching, I decided to base the Midori in my poster on this photograph by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. I wanted to preserve the warmth and respect for the instrument that is clear in the photograph.
The Final Poster
My final poster uses the rule of thirds to break the space into thirds, both vertically and horizontally, to help organize the information and imagery.
