Poster designed for the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway based round the corner from myself between Grimsby and Louth. My main aim was to reduce their yearly calendar into an easily digested piece of information, without a massive amount of whitespace – I liked the design and the thinking behind the layout, but overall it was never continued past two years of usage as they reverted to a more standard calendar approach.
A few of the posters that I created for the Caxton Theatre while I was a member there – always annoyed me that they never kept a copy of the header that I redesigned, as mine (yup ego rant coming…) had a better layout which got the name of the theatre across clearly, made the website address easier to read and noted their charitable status. (end rant!)
But apart from that, I had a lot of fun designing the posters and was a good experience in layout methodology to prioritise the key elements, the posters theme and when looked closely the important information. There’ll be a load of technical terms I didn’t use there, but hey ho. 😉
