Above is my tour poster I made using programs Photoshop and InDesign. Our task was to create a tour poster for our assigned genre, my assigned genre was “Punk”. I took an image which I cut out using Photoshop. I took it a step further to create a stencil effect on the image by turning it into layers and recolouring it.
I then moved it to InDesign where I added a background and text. The text went through a lot of experimenting with different fonts and positions to create this outcome.
For the colour scheme I chose to keep it with a few primary colours. Primary colours are simple but some of the most effective when used together. It also had to match the genre of Punk so I looked at lots of posters from other bands such as The Clash and Black Flag for inspiration.
I have learnt a lot about the programmes and compositions doing this task, and these skills will become useful later on when making a music magazine.
