Command V Poster
This piece is a project I made for typography. The goal was to make an event poster while keeping layout in mind, which makes sense since it is a typography class. One other restriction given to us was to make the title of the image by hand or by Illustrator. While it was fine to use images in this project, I felt like I should test my self by just using type to design this poster. I wanted to see if my choice of font, color, size, and layout would be able to stand without the use of an image.
I decided to make a poster about an event that had taken place at my school a couple days back, called Command V. Command V was an event held at Full Sail where both the instructors and students were able to compete to see who was the better designer. The rules were simple, first they were given a word a couple days before the event, and in this case the word was “Voting”, then at the event they are given only one hour to make a design that would garner a win via audience votes.
Taking the event into account and by also adding the restrictions that were given to me in addition to the ones I had placed on myself, came a poster that I believe turned out very well. If anything I wish the event hadn’t already taken place, so that I would have been able to turn my poster in to see if the school would have approved printing them out for use to advertise the event.
