First-year university project: Poster Design
The aim was to produce a poster advertising a fictional exhibition based on an artifact or range of artifacts featured in the National Museum of Wales.
To begin with, I had a range of different titles to choose from. The one that caught my eye the most was 'Faunacation' (a play on words: Fauna + Fornication).
After deciding on a title and which artifacts to feature, I then had to decide on a target audience. I chose to create a poster aimed at 18 to 25 year-olds, as these are statistically the least likely to visit the museum unless it is for college or university projects.
Sévres porcelain range was the range I decided my exhibition was going to be about. After exploring many options and techniques, I feel this example was my strongest response to the brief.
The style of the poster naturally progressed towards art deco after studying and researching the architecture of the museum and I felt it intensified the overall feel of the poster. The background of the image is a representation of the museum ceiling and I used it to help draw attention to the center image.
