Here is a little help for those of us trying to make a poster.
Usually we spend a lot of time on contents, and try to squish in too much information, but let’s give some thought to the following design elements (which I got from today’s workshop by Jamie Myers, who designs Branchlines): consistency; repetition; alignment; balance; symmetry and the rule of thirds; white space to rest the eye; reduced line length; image resolution; and lastly, colour palette.
Regarding Colour Palette, check out www.color.adobe.com, where you can choose a colour palette based on an image of your own . I include two samples below… This will certainly make choosing colours easier for me. Happy designing!
