For this 3.5 star assignment we were asked to create a minimalist poster TV or movie poster. When I first saw the assignment, I was unsure which movie I would choose, but after some contemplation I decided to go with:
Harry Potter! I really enjoy Harry Potter and since I have not talked about the series, I thought I would bring it to my blog.
I made this poster using two different apps on my phone. I first used the Photoshop app to create the design of the Deathly Hallows (book 7) symbol. I found a wand that I liked, took out the background of the wand and duplicated the wand four times. I then sorted and arranged them to create the symbol. I then searched for a circle that represents a stone from the book, and placed it in the middle. I saved this portion and then took to the second app called Aviary. Here, I added the typography.
I think this assignment turned out pretty well, I am happy with it. I am kind of wishing I chose a darker background color, but that is something that can easily be changed. The design is simple, minimalist, and creates a sense of balance, an aspect of design we discussed in our design blitz.
