BRIEF: Design the poster for the year 10 Drama Production.
Research the previous theatre/movie posters.
What makes these posters successful? Consider the following:
Font style and size
Use of photographs/graphics
Your research may also include investigating what the production is about so that you can choose appropriate colours and images for your design.
Collect a minimum of 10 images you will use for inspiration.
Each image must be annotated Rules for
1 -2 sentences each image. Keep it brief!
Do not retell what is in the image
Do not state that you like/dislike an image
Relate all comments back to art elements. E.g
line, colour, shape, pattern, contrast etc and explain why. Eg. " The use of a restricted colour palette in Homework is effective as it allows your eye to focus on the contrasting yellow and blue"
Below are some examples of images you may include in your research
This is a DESIGN task and must follow the DESIGN PROCESS. See below.
Some images that may be included in your research:
IDEATION (TEACHER DEMO)
1. Complete 3 thumbnail designs based on your images. These sketches need to consider the elements you have analysed in your research. Colour these designs in your sketchbook
2. Using Photoshop begin to create your design TEACHER DEMO
- Ensure you create a new layer for each element
- Ensure you are working on the correct layer
- Save regularly
** If you have decided to include a photograph in your design you MUST take your own image. Taking images from the internet to use in your design is a breach of copyright. In the design industry this is illegal.
1. Experiment with colour for your final design 2. Complete three colour roughs. This will mean saving your design three times, but making small adjustments. eg. one may have a blue background, another may have a red and the third you may have inverted your entire colour scheme.
Save your final design as a JPG file and email to your teacher.
These will be submitted to Mr. Reynolds for selection.
Complete a 250work practitioner’s statement. FULL SENTENCES
Some exhibitions of professional artists work include ‘artist’s or practitioner’s statements’, which provide a brief recount of the intent behind the work, and how it was created. You will need to produce these for ALL works you produce in Year 11 and 12, so it’s good practice to begin now!
