In my DES 115 course, we were challenged with coming up with an event and designing out own poster for the event we created. My event was a music festival which featured all of my favorite artists. The idea behind my design was to take the headlining artists and create individualized artwork for each of them to feature on the posters. I titled the event “Nostalgia Fest” since these artists are nostalgic to me. The way I imagine nostalgia as a design to me coincides with surrealism. So, all the art work created for the event drew inspiration for surreal art pieces. Since my art work was the focal point of my poster, I kept the font and background color rather subdued in an effort to balance out and highlight my artwork. The inspiration for the artwork on the pieces stemmed from the headlining artists brand. Beyoncé’s brand includes the ‘beehive” and her latest album release at the time was “Lemonade” so I featured those elements in my art work. The splitting of the face is supposed to symbolize the exposure of the artists and the honey comb divisions are also inspired by the beehive.
