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.
