Message/ Audience: For this project we were asked to pretend that we just landed a new job and our manager asked us to create a creative and fun movie poster to introduce ourself to the employees at the next staff meeting. Because it was for a job, I thought it would be fun to recreate the “Lucy” movie poster about the power we could have if we were able to use 100% of our brain instead of just 10% of our brain. I would be a great employee with my super brain capabilities! I wanted it to be edgy and captivating so I spent a lot of time getting my self image just right through blending, contrasting and making the eye stand out.
Critique Report: My instructor, Julie Peterson gave me a few suggestions to align my typography and change the bottom “June 2015” color to match my eye. I received the same critique from my classmate, Susan Ruske. I used the pin drop tool to capture the eye color for my bottom text and made minor adjustments in my alignment.
Fonts: Title – Lucida Grande Bold (san serif) Body Copy – Athelas Bold (old style) Movie Poster Condensed Font (sans serif)
