This is your chance to shine now. This is your chance to put all your technical skills with Indesign and your knowledge and understanding of how font, colour, images and language can help communicate a story.
A client has come to you with an image of themselves as a performer. Their style of music will belong to a particular genre. They want you to design a poster for an A4 page in a magazine, advertising and promoting their forthcoming tour. You must include the following:
- Name of artist
- Name of the Tour
- Dates and Venues
- Other information like: where the album can be bought/downloaded, tickets available from and prices etc.
Why not use this tour poster presentation as a start for inspiration or look at the previous presentation?
Consider AIDA – attention, interest, desire and action.
Look at this presentation of CD covers that relate to specific genres and you will see how ‘conventional’ the colour palettes are for each individual genre. Make sure you too follow the conventions but create an innovative and eye catching poster.
Remember, doodle, muse and research before you open up your Indesign.
