Experimentation with colour FMP

I experimented with different colour combinations to see which stood out the most to the public. I was limited in the number of colours i could use in one poster as i was going to screen print the final version. I found that it was best to have the darker colours as the people and the lighter colour as the background as this meant you could see the pattern of people better. I asked my friends which one they preferred and they said they liked the original with blue and pink, although the blue and red one stood out the most. I also liked the red as it suggest a warning and the danger of over consumption of mobile phones. 

I decided that with a white band at the bottom of the page this meant the statistics where more legible and this would therefore be more effective.

I showed my try out posters to karl and he told me that I should try and split the poster into thirds to make a more comprehendible poster so I experimented in different ways of presenting the elements that I already have.

I need to decided that the lighter colour in the background is better so that the figures can become more obvious. I also like the white band at the bottom of the page as it makes the stat stand out more.

 

Refection and Progression FMP

During my tutorial with Clair she told me that she preferred the previous pattern that i had made, and i agree due to the more detail in the clothing. She then explained how to create a pattern on illustrator by adding a swatch which made it easer for me to create an idea of what my poster could start to look like. samples for look up copy

I took colour inspiration from the kings of convenience as I thought the colours worked well together as they are quite contrasting in tone.

Development FMP

Experimenting using hand drawn elements and illustrator I played around with ways of creating the poster and sticker. I would like to experiment more with a different colour pallet and maybe add the Facebook with teeth Symbol to create a more together poster. I will also look at posters that where effective for inspiration. I will also look into stickers and how to print onto stickers.
