We’ve been working on these Illustrator drawn Jazz posters… which are kinda turning out a bit like work by Swiss designers such as Josef Muller-Brockmann, Emil Ruder and Armin Hoffmann, if we’re lucky that is.
Chris has given us kind of a spec. table… with the typeface, alignment, size, weight, style, colour scheme and shapes stated for use. I don’t like goudy old style… on screen 🙂
I have kind of gone off the point though and now started doing my own kind of versions… no real restrictions, just a bit of what I fancy lol
The only thing is that I can only upload jpeg or bmp pictures to my blog so they go a bit fuzzy… but they look nice in eps,tiff and png, I promise 🙂
Comments, as always, are welcome 🙂
Here are some of the ones I have done with the spec table:
I don’t like Goudy Old Style on screen ^ (above)
I don’t really like this one ^ (above)
Then I moved onto my own…
^ This one isn’t quite finished yet….
I decided to do some basically copying the Swiss styles:
Armin Hofmann (Above)
Josef Muller-Brockmann (Above)
This one is a mix of the Armin Hofmann poster with another one that I was developing.
