: You will be creating
an Object Poster, modeled after the Priester Matches Poster of Lucian Bernhard
The Product: Your
poster will advertise a product. Please select a product that you use
on a regular basis.
The Canvas: The student will develop their poster
on a 8 ½ x
11 inch canvas in Photoshop, using either landscape or portrait orientation.
The Rules for the Object Poster: The student will
create their poster to contain the following elements:
- A strongly colored background, with a slight texture.
You can either try to use an overlaying shape with a PATTERN on it, or
maybe use some
light brush strokes, but you need to create a texture of some sort.
Do not turn in an object poster with a flat color background!
- Bold and prominent, but simplified picture
of the product being advertised. Please use the “chromolithography
we used on the last assignment, or you can use brushstrokes or filters
to create the proper look for their product. This graphic MUST be
cut out from its background!
- Changing of the colors of the Product. The Priester
matches poster had the matches colored red and yellow. Please do something
with your product picture. Use filters, color adjustments, brushstrokes,
overlaying layers, etc., to change the colors of your product.
Make sure that the color that you choose is a bright, but pleasing,
to your background.
- Bold and colorful brand name of the product
in an interesting (and THICK) font, NOT in the usual advertising font of
for a suitable font if you cannot find one on your computer.
Check highlandtechnology.org in the FAQ section
information on installing online fonts.
the colors used on these letters should be a nice contrast to
and the product.
- Use filters as needed to add texture to the graphic
and the letters of the brandname, but this needs to be subtle!
