Week 5: Composition
This week I created a poster for the ITP Winter Show. Figure 1 shows my initial sketches.
I knew I wanted to do some design contrasting the creative and more rigid parts of the brain. I was inspired by the image shown in Figure 2 found here.
Figure 3 shows my final design. I used this brain sketch outline that I found on Pinterest.
I focused a lot on symmetry and balance (or imbalance) in this design. Originally the background was white but when I stared playing around with the background color I realized the black really made the rest of the design pop. I also spent some time playing around with fonts and decided to use the bold font weight to highlight itp. Overall I am happy with this design. There was one element to the design that I wanted to add but couldn't figure out how to in Photoshop. I wanted to fade the black lines on the left side of the brain in order to make the colors on that side pop more. In a future iteration of this design I would add this element.
