The poster that I created is of a punk genre. We weren’t allowed to choose our genre in this task as it would prove that we can make any type of genre poster that may be out of our comfort zone. The things that we had to include in this poster were the name of the artist, what their tour is called, the dates and places of the tour, and some information about where tickets can be bought.
Once I finished creating the poster, I did a self assessment to see how successful I was in meeting the criteria of this task. I found that I met most of the criteria of the poster but missed a few things in the brief like price and the name of the tour. Things I did well were keeping to the theme of the genre of punk and using a colour scheme that suits it. I also tried to keep the poster simple with only the necessities, making sure I didn’t put too much writing on it which could make the audience lose interest or get distracted from the main point I’m trying to get across. I looked at other tour posters for the genre of punk and found that many of the fonts used are bold and thick for the name of the band/ artist and have handwritten fonts for smaller pieces of information so tried to match these styles.
Targets For Improvement
- Making sure to fulfil the brief, so add in the name of the tour and the places/ venues it will be at
- Get rid of the slight white glow around my main cover star where I haven’t completely gotten rid of the background
- Use slightly more bright and clearer colours for font as although they match the genre, being so dark they are hard for the audience to read
