Project #12: Making a Mohiba Poster

June 5, 2014

Take all your design skills, and turn them into a real project that will be shown around town.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first trip to America, and their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.

The Beatles changed rock and roll forever, and they still rock. So Mohiba will be dedicated to them, and we’re going to call it
Make a poster that will be BIG: 20 inches by 30 inches. We really will print and post the best work all around town and in the school.

All posters should include the following:

  1. Beatles images, emphasis on the early ones from the early to mid 60’s
  2. “Morse High School presents”
  3. Location: Montgomery Theatre, Morse High School, 826 High Street, Bath.
  4. Tickets: $7.00 student, $10.00 adult, on sale in school or at the door
  5. Dates: November 21 and 22, 2014
  6. Time: 7:00 PM

You decide what is important, what is not important. You can overlay, blend, and combine images using Pixelmator. (It would be interesting to use some graphics right inside the letters.)

Do the final layout and type design in Pages. Remember, fonts are vector-based and blow up much better if you work in Pages, not Pixelmator.
