This poster represents my first real experience working with photoshop. It is a teaser-poster for our group project documenting the festival culture of Isla Vista throughout its existence.
I used a photo that I took of the Del Playa shoreline for my background, and tweaked the settings to make the colors pop and capture audiences’ attentions. The vibrant colors also give the whole poster a dream like quality that is supposed to represent the memories of past festivals.
On top of the background photo I blended in a picture of a band preforming in IV in the 1970s. They are slightly opaque and sit off in the distance of the ocean horizon, symbolizing how the legacy of these events still has an effect on IV today.
The header at the top is supposed to guide the reader to interpret the image, not give away any details of the project. The image itself communicates more than the text.
