Here is a moodboard featuring New Balance Sneakers. Isn’t it wonderful? No. No it is not.
Poster Design is an important consideration in marketing endeavours. This moodboard captures what I think is important in terms of mood, composition, colour and typography.
For the roll-up banner we were asked to use Adobe Illustrator to create a vector image. I’m not as fond of this application as I am of plain old photoshop. That is probably because I’m not very good at it yet. Consciously incompetent. I imbibed influence from Peter Saville’s acid colour palettes, my coachella moodboard and the all-powerful illuminati.
I think I’ll enjoy illustrator with a bit more practice.
This is the third instalment in the task to create concept designs for our chosen brands (in my case, Coachella 2017). This is the front and back of a postcard. Why anyone would send a postcard from a music festival is beyond me, do they even have postal service? I suppose it could be a nice keepsake or something.
Anyway, I’ve drawn inspiration here from Peter Saville again and also my favourite postcard designs from way back when. The palette is a cooler mix of purples and blues which is in keeping with the trippy hippy hues but has less of the acid edge I used in previous items.
I think it might be my favourite.
As discussed in previous posts, we were set the task of creating concept designs for our chosen brands based on our design research. This is my poster design for Coachella 2017.
As part of the task, we were to use the same image on each piece and so I have here, although I have decided to switch up the colour palette to create a more visually striking piece. In this instance, I have taken inspiration from Neville Brody and his fusion of typography and images to create a busy piece which is hopefully still aesthetically pleasing.
If I had more time, I’d probably reduce the brightness of the lighting effects and sharpen the text but I’m happy enough with it as it is just now as a concept piece.
The pallette this time is that of the psychedelic art you might find in South East Asia.
We were set a task to create new ticket designs, posters, postcards and roll-up banners for either Coachella, New Balance or Anthropologie. We were to draw inspiration from our various mood boards and use only our own images in photoshop to create our work.
I chose Coachella because I felt that I could do more with the psychedelic, festival-in-the-desert vibe and have taken inspiration here from Peter Saville. Some of his work utilises an acid-house, loud pallette and I have tried to incorporate this here.
The image is a photograph of a tapestry from my room as I am slowly becoming an insufferable hippy. I feel that it captures some of what Coachella is about and the tie -dye colour pallette helps to reinforce this.
I quite like it actually. I’ve never used photoshop before so this is my cherry-popping piece.
Coachella is an American indie rock festival which is held in Idaho every year. Tickets, posters and roll-up designs need to be made for events like these. Do you see where I am going with this? In creating a stimulus board that captured the mood of the desert festival I selected these chosen few. I think these pictures represent the fashion, the people, the location and the feeling that Coachella is supposed to be.
From this point, I can think about designs for posters, tickets and roll-up banners. Certainly, a special kind of roll-up design is important in capturing the true spirit of Coachella.
Since Roll-Up Banners are primarily used in b2b sales environments, they are not typically examples of mind-blowing design so much as they are cold corporate sales pitches. The examples that I have found here do their best to buck that trend and be both informational and eye-catching.
