Project #06

Contrast Poster
Due: September 5

Summary

Using our art supplies, make a poster that illustrates contrast. Non-digital.

Guidelines

  • Use white 9" x 12" paper as the foundation for your design.
  • Design it in landscape format: with the 12" edge going left-to-right and the 9" edge going top-to-bottom.
  • You can use any of the available materials to complete your ad: markers, colored pencils, crayons, rulers, compasses, colored paper, scissors, glue. Do not cut pictures from magazines.
  • Start your design in pencil so you can make adjustments before you finalize your design.
  • Design your poster with the following elements:
    • The word "contrast" should appear three times in three very different styles of lettering.
    • Each time, the letters in the word "contrast" should be at least two inches high.
    • Restrict your color selection to three very different (contrasting) colors plus the white of the paper. Using only three colors will unify your poster.
    • Put a contrasting background rectangle behind the word "contrast" at least once.
    • Thick "bubble" letterforms will work best for this. Do your best to create outlines for the letters and fill them in, rather than writing the word "contrast" with simple handwriting.

example

  • Make it neatly. Use a ruler. Take your time.

 

Here is an example with red, black and yellow, along with the white of the page:

The best six to nine posters will be displayed on the wall throughout the year.
