POSTERS FOR GOOD



POSTERS FOR GOOD IS EXACTLY WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE, I CREATED A SERIES OF TWENTY POSTERS WHICH WERE ADDED TO A COLLABORATIVE WEBSITE AND INSTAGRAM PAGE BY THE SAME MANE WHICH WAS TO IGNITE CHANGE ON SOCIAL MEDIA VIA ART. I WAS INSPIRED BY A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS DURING THIS TIME BUT MOSTLY MOVIES AND MUSIC. I PAID HOMAGE TO ARTISTS LIKE KENDRICK LAMAR AND MOBB DEEP TO TALK ABOUT THE CURRENT CLIMATE WE FIND OURSELVES IN. AS WELL AS REFERENCING MOVIES SUCH AS, THE WIND RISES.  


I EXPERIMENTED A LOT WITH TYPOGRPAHY DURING THIS PROJECT, AND TRIED TO HONE AND DEVELOP MY OWN SKILLS DURING THIS TIME, CREATING A CUSTOM FONT OF MY OWN WHICH WAS USED FOR THE POPULAR POSTER, ‘UP IN THE CLOUDS’. I ALSO USED THE RISOGRAPH MACHINE FOR THE FIRST TIME TO CREATE MY BEST SELLING POSTER DESIGN, ‘IT’S MINT UP NORTH’. THIS WAS THE POSTER WHICH GOT ME INTO RISOGRAPHY AND HELPED ME IN CONNECTING WITH DESIGNERS AND LOCAL BUSINESSES IN THE LOCAL AREA SUCH AS; LAZY JOE’S, BASE CAMP AND THE CAULDRON BISTRO.
