View Full Version : my surf poster
30th of April 2004 (Fri), 01:03
I had to make a movie poster for class .... this is a real movie from last year, I took the photo of the surfer last tuesday and made everything in illustrator except the 3 logos at the bottom ... I did copy most of the text straight from the real poster [most].
Just wondering if it could pass as a real poster? lol
the only thing that bugged me was the actual title, I dunno just something about it ... like it wasnt strong enough
click on it to enlarge!!

Everything looks good...
Except I don't like the Step Into Liquid effect. it just doesn't seem like it goes with the rest of the poster to me...

I agree. The title is too different from the rest of the text, It needs to at have a common theme (i think there is a rule that you should not have more than 4 syles of type this includes color, effects, the type itself, etc. ?)
Otherwise the poster kicks ass!!!!! It is very belivable. Great job

thanks, yeah I just dont know what to do with the title .... I have a week to fix it, but Im pretty sure I would get an A with this :D
I think I might change the font for the title, make it more bold... squareisher [if thats a word :lol: ]

heres the newest version
I kind of made everything the same 2-3 colors and I think I only used 1 font, Times New Roman

I think it's awesome!!!
From an ex-print designer, the only thing stopping it from looking even more superb, is NOT using times new roman as the title and the lettering at the bottom. Or whatever Serif typeface you chose ...
Use something Sans-serif - it'll loook tons better!
Like Impact for the bottom - that always looks decent for small type on a poster ... and I'm talking about the first line of type, the one with the bullet points ... The No's ...
Great picture!!!!!! :Thumbs:

thanks again ... Ill give it another shot with a different font, I really didnt like the Times NR but I didnt want to spend the time changing it all, now I see that it would be a good idea :)
I copied some of the text and design/layout from the original poster
