Challenge: Design three 11x17 posters for a three different bands or three different gigs at First Avenue. The posters are only to contain type and color. Since this is the final project from the Typography 1 course, all knowledge about type should be used. This includes, typefaces, layout, composition, letterspacing, and hierarchy.
Solution: The band that I chose was Brand New and each poster represented a different gig and album from the band. Visually, the posters reflected the band’s album covers by using colors from the albums within the poster. My most successful solution features a large sans-serif font in bold, bright colors against another bold, bright color. My second solution features a bright red with a chunky slab-serif header and thin sans-serif subheader. My final solution features another sans-serif that was edited to connect and create line and paths.
