The first poster I have looked at is featuring a woman with brightly coloured afro-style hair. The colours in the poster are eye catching, and work well together to give the poster an ’80’s’ style look. The typography also features well on this poster, as its fairly simple so doesn’t contrast with the bold intricate picture behind it. This poster creates a warm, exiting mood as the colours connote happiness and being not too harsh, give a warm welcoming feeling. The butterfly on the woman’s mouth is definitely the focal point of the picture, as being darker than the rest of the image, draws your eyes into it. The butterfly is also very effective as gives a sense of the unknown. Covering the woman’s eyes shows that perhaps this poster doesn’t want to reveal too much information, but leaves it as a weird and wonderful mystery as to what it’s about; which s represented by this butterfly. This could also however be a con of the poster, as not revealing a lot of information makes it harder for the reader to know what the poster is about. There is small text featured at the bottom of this poster, which again is perhaps something that is more of a negative aspect as it would be quite hard to read from a distance, which slightly defeats the point of a poster.
This poster, shows someone swimming with a snorkel, and is advertising an aquarium. The text is very easy to read and clearly represents the purpose of the poster. The imagery used on the poster is sketchy, and uses bright bold attention seeking colours. However, these colours work well on this particular poster as being fairly natural, clearly show the natural, animal based event. At the bottom of the poster, we can see that there is typography there which appears to be more sketchy than the rest. This is effective as makes the event appealing to children as well as adults, as perhaps has a friendlier look to it. The focal point of the poster is the diver, which is effective as it is aquarium-based imagery, so holds a strong representation of the purpose. As well as practically showing the aquarium, the sketchiness, and un-neat aspect to it creates a friendly inviting environment.
The next poster I looked at shows a woman with long hair which appears merged into the basic, coloured borders of the poster. Minimal text is featured in this poster, and the poster appears to rely on the image to represent the posters purpose. the contrasting blue and pink colours work well together and seem fairly ’60’s’ inspired. The mood of the poster is very relaxed and calming. The typography in this piece however, is very hard to read, and the important information, which is shown at the bottom of the screen, is very small and difficult to read even up close, so from a distance is close to impossible. This is something that could have perhaps been further developed on the poster, to make it suit its purpose. This poster also has a very ‘bubbly’ feel to it, making it fun and attention grabbing. The posture of the person in the lower right hand corner suggests a active, sporty type mood, which again is something that may make the poster appealing.
This poster appears to show a hand-drawn design, with two different types of typography. The focal point of the poster is the fox, which merges into the swirls on the poster. The girl in the picture appears to have a slightly textured hat, and like the majority of the poster, is also hand-drawn. There could be range of hidden messages behind the imagery, as featuring a fox and a rabbit could represent predator and prey, but as both show their heads in a darker colour, could be representing some form of identity. The swirls of the girls hair seem to make up the background of the image, maybe suggesting that the human has the largest amount of power out of them all? The text at the very bottom of the poster is clear and easy to read. It is not extremely big however, but still should be viable from a distance.
