Ein Freund von mir organisiert regelmässig im kleinen Rahmen thematische Filmtage, für die ich seit einer Weile jeweils die Flyer gestalte.
Als nächstes ist nun das Schaffen des amerikanischen Kultregisseurs Tim Burton dran und so habe ich mich einmal mehr ans Werk gemacht. Das Ergebnis kombiniert handgezeichnete Elemente mit digitaler Kolorierung.

Last Friday, I visited the Cooper Hewitt museum with the rest of my class for a poster exhibition. During my visit, I saw a huge collection of different posters and other designs. I enjoyed viewing those posters because they were all very aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at.
A few of my favourite pieces I saw at the museum are attached here in this post. They’re all posters except for the stencil piece in the second last picture. I also noticed a common trait between all these pieces. They either had bright colours or fancy looking fonts. Or even if they play around with the perspective of the viewer like the first three posters. I really liked the considerations of dimensions in a poster rather than just keeping everything flat and two dimensional.
At the same time, I also liked the interesting and unique patterns created on some of the works such as the fifth and seventh poster. I even liked the wave-like pattern of the stencil piece. Sometimes, I enjoy the simplicity of certain posters such as the fourth poster that is in a bright neon pink with a large picture of a spoon dripping liquid. What I especially like about that poster is that there was only a very clean and simple font used. There was also not much text either. Most of the space was taken up by the large image. I think that that managed to catch the attention of the viewer easily without any use of fancy fonts. Use of bright colours in the poster designs was also something that I liked. This probably explains why most of my favourite posters had colours.
Overall, this was a really good exhibition and a good museum visit. I also had a great time browsing through the museum’s store, looking at their products and walking away in disappointment after checking the price tags.
