SAB MHCC mardi gras : IM291 practicum

Another event for SAB, this poster for MardiGras was designed in Illustrator CS3 with an emphasis on color, type and enhancements, and very simple illustrations. To push the theme of a party/celebration I added confetti and musical notes to really jazz it up! Highlight features on the heading, mask and string of large beads give it a little pop of 3D.
I’ve found that this style can set itself apart favorably at times. Keeping a white background, using bursts of color and energy attract the eye. Giving the heading a stronghold of weight and position with adequate support from the event details leads the eye throughout the layout. ┬áSome said it was eye-catching and stood out in the midst of all the other posters on the announcement board.
