Green Man Poster
I was working with the Green Man Festival group for my client work project. The project was a promotional campaign for the Green Man Festival. For my project specifically, I wanted to focus most on the poster, because that is what is going to get the people to notice the show and come to it.
I wanted to use a more psychadelic style for my poster because of the target audience I was aiming for. I used a more organic lookin typeface for my poster because I was more worried about the aesthetic look from afar than the readablitiy from afar. If the poster is interesting it will draw people in to read more. The poster is also big enough that it is fairly readable. I also designed a bumper sticker and frisbee. For both of these, I wated to design them very simply and with only one or two colors for cost reasons. I kept the organic floral idea through both, and also kept the same typeface for consistance. the frisbee can simply be printed with one color on a white frisbee. I figure both will either be sold at the show (not before) or given away as free promotion. Both should be cheap enough to make in bulk.
In the last issue of relix magazine I found an interesting article on living green. For those of you who dont know, Relix is a music magazine which focuses more on blues, jazz, and jam band culture, as apposed to more pop culture. I believe it was the March issue which has an article which gives 50 ways of living more green. Some ways are very simple and easy for anyone to do, such as: turning off lights when you're not home to using real silver wear at home or camping instead of using paper and plastic utensils. Other ways are a little more difficult for some of us, like buying a hybrid car. I dont think you can read about the article online, but for more information on the magazine, you can head to www.relix.com
