My designs are based off how my pictures were taken, the plan is to integrate the text into the picture itself using intense colors to have it draw the eye. I wanted to have the text become part of the poster and image rather then having the text slapped on top, though I did make a couple roughs with the traditional text on top. The success of attempting to integrating the text to the image only work in 3 of the 5 images the so for the rest I’ll have to add a section or cover a section of the post for the text. Overall I wanted to incorporate the text as part of the image but in some of the images i couldn’t figure out a way to integrate it so I kept it traditional.

In the first rough that a drew I picked a picture of wooden barrels on a wagon which i thought went well with the Oktoberfest event so I looked through the distillery district website to find the information on the pub which ended up to be Mill Street Brewers so the text on it was easily placed with the pubs address and company slogan. For the second rough I wanted to use a picture that had a bicycle in the foreground so i thought it would fit the bicycle and segway store located in the distillery district so again I choose to use their slogan on the poster as it’s statement and store information for supporting materials. and for the last 3 they are all themed around the distillery district as it’s focus for text and imagery.

In my final concept I had decided to use elements from all 3 of my presentable concepts because I believe that they all held good qualities. So in my final design I kept the design of the globe to signify “Global” and with it I kept the headset which for me represented “communication, I also decided to keep the graph background because I really didn’t want to use a dollar sign but unfortunately that was all I could think of that would cover “profit” so once i had those elements decided i found that it looks very bland and boring so i decided i should give it a interesting background o which i made a glowing ball of green smoke in the background of the globe. Green because it is the color of money so to bring out the idea of profit just in case the graph in the background wasn’t enough. Now that I’ve finished it I think that I may have made the globe slightly to large because I find it’s a little dominating even if it’s the main focus and I could have had more of the glowing lines around the globe but I didn’t want the globe looking like it’s the atom icon rather then a globe. Overall I like my idea of whats happening in my image but something doesn’t sit completely right with it yet in my mind I feel like I may have put too much stuff near the centre of the image so I’m creating too much chaos.
