Invites

New invites!

I thought I would use the design I used for the banner as a neat design for the invites. I cut a part of the design from the banner and placed it half way over the invite using the same colours for the front. As for the back I decided that the text was two colours of green so I would change the colours of the design to match the text colour and move the design around a bit so it shows a different part of the categories.

 

Posters

Mixed the colours around a bit now. Gone for a green 🙂 I am happy with the last one but not sure if this will be the last chosen posters.

The invites are here!

Before jumping into bed I decided to have a go at these invites for the graduate show. I gotta admit I do like this as it’s not as bright as the poster haha but that’s good because a poster needs to be eye catching as an invite is given to you. The colours are patched and matched together strangely enough and it just has the right amount of info on it. Where to go, a little bit of what it’s about and what’s included.

Give me the ‘Thumbs up’ if you like it 😉

New poster idea

I was looking through an 8VO book I had for christmas. I do love their style in typography and how they display it. I came across a poster and was inspired to do a similar thing with my poster to make it a bit more interesting. Not sure whether I pulled it off but it certainly is a bit different with the bold colours haha. Let me know what you think in the comment section below 🙂

 

Masanari Murai : â€˜Lithographs’

Masanari Murai graduated from university in 1928 and almost immediately left for France with the intention of further developing his skills as a landscape painter. In Paris, the impact of direct contact with abstract art was such that Murai began to simplify his landscapes, exploring his own approach to abstract painting. After returning to Japan in 1932, Murai became one of Japan’s pioneers in the area of abstract art; he was a leader in its promotion, exhibition…

Quick Add

From the previous post I was talking about trashing through my usual elegant white space style to try and mix it up a lil’ so after I did that I thought I would add a bit more texture to the background using my 2012  concept. I’m not quite sure about it yet; it may look a bit crowded, but it looks okay. Please let me know what you think if you have any comments 🙂
