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. Some said it was eye-catching and stood out in the midst of all the other posters on the announcement board.
