VERNISSAGE POSTERS

Project 03 (2021) — Poster Design

Task

The mandate for this project was to create stunning compositions promoting the Dawson Graphic Design Vernissage.

Challenge

The challenge was in finding a concept that is visually striking and makes sense with the idea of graduation/moving on.

Insight

The funny thing through all of this is that my peers chose the poster that I liked the least, but working with that specific one gave me a new appreciation for poster design that I did not have previously. I now find myself looking at posters daily.

Outcome

While I had many different compositions, the one that landed was with the idea of progression (i.e: 19, 20, 21, 22.) I chose to highlight 2021 since it is a unique event that only happens every century. I am very pleased with the results. The chosen poster also made top 5 amongst the staff voting.
