Every now and then designers get an opportunity to do some self initiated work. I had just that a few weeks ago, and I decided I would produce a series of posters using my own photography. I wanted to create something that had a vintage vibe with a ‘used film’ effect to compliment the photography. When putting the pieces together I found that the first poster I did had quite a playful theme to it in the images I had picked – a toy robot, a helter skelter, a little character putting his tongue out flying an aeroplane. A quote came to mind: “It’s Just a Ride”. I added this quote to the poster, made a few final tweaks, and went about creating the next one, only this time, specifically picking photos I knew would fit around another quote that I liked: “The Journey Of A Thousand Miles Begins With Just One Step”. I’m really happy with the first two posters in this series and I will no doubt be making more:
Both are available to purchase as A3 prints in our Etsy shop, do keep a look out for more coming soon!
I’ll be back soon with a blog post about some of my favourite graphic design pieces, until then, take care!
