Art & Craft Exhibition and Sale - A Poster


I was asked to design the poster for the art and craft exhibition and sale I'm taking part in up in Lincolnshire this weekend. I decided this was a good opportunity to practice my new Photoshop skills (and boy do I need practice!).

The brief was to design an eye catching, colourful poster which works as A5 flyers as well as both A4 and A3 posters. It had to be easy to read, and feature examples of work from everyone who contributed images.

Here's the first draft:

I was fairly pleased with this, and off it went. However I then discovered that there were some other images I hadn't been sent which had to be included, so here's the final version:

I did feel I had to compromise the design a bit on this final one (and I had run out of time to start again from scratch) but everyone else was happy so it went to print. The printed flyers looked great and I think it has satisfied the brief. Quite keen to have a go at another one now.

As you can see, the event is on in South Willingham in Lincolnshire this coming weekend - if you're in the area do pop in and say hello!
