When discussing the poster developments, we decided as a group that it would be good to incorporate some of the colours used by the artist into the background design. To do this, I thought it would be interesting to try to create the background for the posters using the artists actual artwork. Below are the designs for Mike Mignola. As a group, it was decided that these designs were a lot more interesting and engaging to look at as a viewer, and they also stick with Izzie's idea of creating a 3D poster design - as they look a lot less 2D than all of the other poster developments to far.
I then began creating similar backgrounds for one of the speakers at LIFF30. Below are the poster designs created for Amma Asante. These designs were also a lot more engaging to the viewer, so this style of poster design was decided as a group to be taken forward and developed.
The concept of these poster designs was to create an excitement and intriguing visual which would entice the viewer to find out more about the event. The designs create a mystery and therefore engage with the viewer on a different level than the previous designs. The poster designs for Mike Mignola also follow the idea of using the specific shape he uses in a lot of his backgrounds, as the shape of the distortion follows this pattern.
