One of my favorite project this year was a poster, believe it or not. It helps that it was for a bright cheery event like a handcrafted holiday boutique complete with a bake sale and a hint of grandma’s lovingly curated attic. I’ve been dreaming of creating a completely handwritten poster for a long time and I finally got the opportunity to play a little.
It all starts with a sketch, especially with so many moving pieces. Page after page in my notebook became filled with ideas of stacking type, playing letterform against letterform until everything locked up to my liking.
I moved from group to group keeping the overarching master layout in my mind at all times.
I knew I wanted to play up the “Star of Wonder” night time motif with a deep dark navy sky (one of my favorite colors of 2013) and a pop of bright cheery color in the setting sun sky.0
