Here is my first draft for my poster.
Typography Poster Information
I want to do a minimalistic poster with text and maybe a couple shapes that are made in illustrator. Below are some examples of something that I would like.
I want to use the following quote:
Peace is the time it takes to reload your rifle.
The fundamental five design principles are the basis of visual design. These principles help designers make sure that their products are effective and visually pleasing. Some of these principle overlap because they all work together to help designers create a finished product. The five basic principles are balance, rhythm, unity, proportion and dominance.
Balance can be seen through symmetrical, asymmetrical or formal balance. In this poster you can see asymmetrical balance. This is because on one side the question mark is right side up while on the other. One does not overpower the other and they seem to fit together nicely. If both were right side up and just mirror images of each other, this would be symmetrical balance.
Rhythm is the use of repetition to draw the readers eyes across the page. In this case the artist uses the same font to help the reader follow the text across the page. Although sometimes the author makes some modification to the test to bring attention to certain words the main point is to use repetition to draw the viewers eyes.
Unity is the use of similar items to make them fit together. In this case the artist uses the same sized square to make it look like all the pieces go together. The author used different colors to make all the different squares fit together nicely. The colors compliment each other so that they fit together.
Proportion is the comparitive relationship with two or more different elements of a project. In this case the larger parts of the design seem to come to the front. Then the smaller part with the block of text seems to go to the back. Your eyes are drawn to the largest part of the poster which is the title. Then they go to the middle text which is slightly faded out and smaller than the title. then finally your eyes will rest on the smaller chunk of text.
Dominance is the use of different color and styles to make certain things more prominent. The words “Graphic Design” Are red and in a different font to bring the attention of your eyes to these letters. The artist uses this different stye to make sure the viewer knows that the subject of his poster is graphic design.
