Human rights poster Article 2

Out of all the poster designs for Human rights articles, this one is my favourite, I like the use of imagery and the text.

This was an exercise to test my typographic skills, I am only a beginner and have made a couple of mistakes. However I have learnt from my mistakes, now I know what I can change to make it more fitting.

This piece is what i submitted for a live brief for a creative art festival in the town. I used san-serif type then used brushes on photoshop to create the splattered effect on each letter, then I transferred it into illustrator to get the spatter and colouring to match. However I had complications due to the pixillation of the brushes used. To avoid this i had to change the pieces into vectors and removed the white around the inside of the text. Image

I latter refined this piece and used colours suitable for the festival. I also asked my classmates which of my designs they thought was the most eye catching and recognisable. This is what they chose. I also came up with a little slogan.

After this piece I began to experiment with different layout styles and also different colours. I personally liked a tester piece I did using a dynamic composition. But the rest of my group liked this piece which I then used as my final.

This piece was an exercise in layers and transparency. I used two contrasting images, an angel and a demon. As a quick exercise I think this piece was successful, however If I spent more time on this piece I could make it more symmetrical and easy to understand.
