Final Poster: Mark O'Connor
So this is what I ended up with for the Folly judging on Wednesday. The collage represents not only the instruments that will be played at the show, but is also reminiscent of Mark's multi-talent, and how he pulls from multiple genres to make his own sound. The amalgamation of typography (univers, neutraface, serifa) Hints at the same idea of multiple genres and sounds as well as making the poster relatable to multiple audiences. I felt that the condensed sans serif would appeal to a younger crowd while the serifed type gives the feeling of approachability and age. The color palette is an americana christmas. This is a holiday show. I didnt want to take an obvious color palette and scream christmas. I wanted it to be a subtle hint. The dulled colors relate more towards Mark OConnor and give a mood of his sound.
