Poster

Rafe Copeland's picture

Hi Everyone,

I've recently been asked by the local student arm of the Green party to make them a poster. Although it's too late to make any changes for the actual event (already gone to print), I'm interested to get some feedback because it was something of a new adventure into an almost Constructivist style.

I would love some criticism.

Thanks!

Hello, i think that theres a hierarchy problem going on it there, to do this kind of layouts, you must organize them in the most bizare but legible way, i believe that there is a problem with lettering beeing too close to the edjes of the pages, this is something that confuses the eye, the numerous types of font weights make the eye follow a balance line, getting to confusing with them, you make the viewer to lose his mind and just stop trying to read the poster, also, i have been writting this for about 2 minutes and i have already forgotten the message, the only thing i remember is GREEN, that is because green had something different on its shape (leaf) , i dont know but i would say, take it easy with the typefaces, use max 2 weihts or correctly justify the use of more through your design.

Rafe — I like this, though the El Lissitzky style really cries out for a bar of crimson red somewhere in the design. Without that it looks a bit anaemic. But I like the angled type and I think it's well balanced.

Thanks for your comments; I would like to put some colour in there, I will try that out (the poster had to be black and white on this occassion though). And yeah, I used four different weights; perhaps I overdid it a bit there, though I think the type up to the edges is part of what gives it its dynamism.

I appreciate all of your feedback!

Of course a slab of very rich green would provide a counterpoint to Lissitzky's/Malevitch's usual red.
