Our brief was to create a poster explaining our policies and outlining what our group was about. After doing some research I found some methods in which we, as a group could design a poster including all of the things we would take from the past decades and bring to the future generations.
My first design was a colourful poster, with the use of rectangles to show what we would take from each decade. I thought at first this was a good way in which it showed what we wanted to bring back. By using different fonts for the heading,”New Values from the Past” and the subheadings of decades, made it a little easier for the audience to decode and decipher what the poster was explaining. The only problem with this design is that it look quite clumsy and unprofessional.
So after some more research and designing, we came up with another design which did the same sort of things, just in a different format. We had our party name in the centre of the page, and had all of the decades from the 1900’s coming out from it. Coupled with the dates was an image, an image showing what we would bring from the past. These would range from inspirational figure heads, to objects and a way of life. The problem with this is that I found people found it difficult to understand some of the images, but this style of poster looked more relevant than the last one because of the old style in was designed in, giving it a more thought out feel. In addition to that, the red and orange triangles are supposed to represent fire, and we are saving these values from the flames from which they will be forgotten.
Although this poster looked far better and more professional than the last, it still had a similar problem in that it didn’t outline any policies, like a political party should do, thus making it unclear to people what we, as a party are about.
