Revised Booklet and Poster

Below are the revised booklet and poster. In critique, we talked about relying less on the graphics and making the type become the graphics. I changed the typeface to Franklin Gothic to allow for easier justification (which helps it take the shape better). I chose to do it in all caps to suggest the traditional lettering that constructivists used. I also played with scale shifts and random angles to again fit more with the constructivist style. I also worked on making the spreads more cohesive rather than 6 separate pages.

For the poster, in critique people brought up that the poster seemed a bit flat compared to the booklet (which I agreed with). Stenberg brother posters always had some sort of depth, even if that depth was created with flat object, particularly buildings so I wanted to incorporate the castle from Harry Potter to add that sense of location and depth.

First Printed Draft

Below is the first printed draft of my project. I printed it on the banner printer to get it to the scale I wanted. Stapled them together for the mock-up, and trimmed and folded them.

I really like how the colors look on the cream paper, it really softened them and gave it more of an authentic feel. For the final one I need to find a way to make sure the folds come out crisper and the edges look cleaner.

I'm happy with the size, however. Not too big, but not too small.
