This is a poster I rushed together simply to actually have something to show for my formative assessment of this brief… The reason for the poor quality, is mainly because I made it in about 2o minutes (to be honest…), but this was because I was dedicating my efforts to the main brief; data visualisation. This was because it was meant to be handed in by the 6th March, however has now been pushed to the 8th May, so I could have dedicated my efforts to this brief… however I will create a new poster in it’s place.
All in all the poster lacks concept, has no real design lead, and is pretty damn generic, as far as generic design goes… Though there is actually more to it than meets the eye, however one must need to know the artist quite well to understand. there are three of his style of typefaces used, the XL (donut) logo + the Recordings part of it in another, as well as his name in Cooper Black. These follow a colour scheme related to the artist too. The hat motif is that of the award he won, which is coloured with a tie dye pattern; Tyler was wearing a tie dye t-shirt when he won the award. The award icon also incorporates an inverted cross in the pole, another reference to the artist. The colour scheme used in the text references Tyler too, as does the background, the colour gradient used is the same as a colour gradient often used for his OFWGKTA logo. The way I’ve done it is to show Tyler’s split personalities, his lighter side and darker side, this has been represented as showing a 50/50 split of the design being dark/light. Finally, I used the background texture I have as it added some sustenance to the design.
Poor effort, but I’ll have another crack at it.
