I chose to go with “Art Nouveau” because we were asked as a class to step outside of our comfort zone for this project. I’ve never attempted using an Art Nouveau style. This stands as my first attempt. I stand neutral on whether or not I achieved the “look” of this specific genre. I leave it to you. Art Nouveau uses thick black outlines while keeping the inner lines quite thin. It uses gradients, as well as, specific styles of fonts. The poster promotes a Gig of an “Up & Coming” French music artist, Lady Nouveau, who will be headlining a concert in France at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Originally, she was supposed to have Kid Cudi opening for her concert, but I didn’t have enough time to trace a picture of that artist to the extent I had hoped. So, I left him out.
I set up a photo-shoot with a friend in order to get the picture for this poster. About an hour was spent trying to get the right picture. It was fun nonetheless!
I figure something is better than nothing, correct? It’s a work in progress, that unfortunately will still be in progress once the deadline hits.
