This post might change or disappear all together as I am not completely happy with appearance of it, but it is good for now.
I this post I wanted to create a music club flyer at the it is electronic music party flyer.
The tower you can see is The Berlin TV Tower (German: Fernsehturm) is a television tower in central Berlin, Germany (close to Alexanderplatz in Berlin-Mitte).
The tower was designed by East German architects Fritz Dieter, GÜnter Franke and Werner Ahrendt and constructed by the administration of the German Democratic Republic between 1965 and 1969. Test broadcasts began on 3 October 1969, and the tower was officially inaugurated four days later on the GDR’s National Day. The tower was not only meant to transmit television signals, it was meant to be a symbol of Berlin (which it remains today, as it is easily visible throughout the central and some suburban districts of Berlin) and to be one of the most important symbols demonstrating the superiority of a socialist society.
I once and went to have a tea there with my mother, one nice thing about it it keeps turning around.
With its height of 368 meters (1,198 ft), it is the tallest structure in Germany, the second tallest structure in the European Union (by half a metre), and is the fourth tallest freestanding structure in Europe. There is a visitor platform and a revolving restaurant in the middle of the sphere. The visitor platform, also called panoramic floor, is at a height of about 203 metres (666 ft) above the ground and visibility can reach 42 kilometres (26 mi) on a clear day. The restaurant TelecafÉ, which rotates once every 30 minutes, is a few metres above the visitors platform at 207 metres (679 ft) (originally it turned once per hour; the speed was later doubled following the tower’s late 1990s renovation). Inside the shaft are two lifts that shuttle visitors up to the sphere of the tower within 40 seconds. There is also a Staircase with 986 steps.
The most popular theory about Valentine’s Day’s origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn’t want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor’s daugter signing it “from your Valentine”.
I have decided to continue with the Valentine’s theme. I have created these Cocktail Party posters to offer an option and practice my Adobe Illustrator skills.
I wanted to create something as cute as possible.
Or you could pop over to Finland where Valentine’s Day is called Ystävänpäivä, which translates into “Friend’s day”. It’s more about remembering your buddies than your loved ones.
Some interesting facts about St Valentine’s day
In Victorian times it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine’s Day card. I would be annoyed if my cards was anonymous.
Based on retail statistics, about 3 per cent of pet owners will give gifts to their pets on this day. That is funny one.
About 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year. This makes it the second largest seasonal card sending time of the year
If you’re single don’t despair. You can celebrate Singles Awareness Day (SAD) instead. That certainly helps.
Meant as an alternative to Valentine’s Day, the holiday is for single people to celebrate or to commiserate in their single status.
For this post I have decided to create a Valentine’s Party poster. I did some research and this designs are what I have cup with.
This celebration of mad shopping happens every year and I can’t say I like it, but it can be sweet.
I haven’t written the text below so I can’t take a credit for it, but never the less it was interesting read.
Who was St Valentine?
The day gets its name from a famous saint, but there are several stories of who he was.
The popular belief about St Valentine is that he was a priest from Rome in the third century AD.
PAThis is the oldest known Valentine’s Day message in English. It was written in 1477
Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage because he thought married men were bad soldiers. Valentine felt this was unfair, so he broke the rules and arranged marriages in secret.
When Claudius found out, Valentine was thrown in jail and sentenced to death.
There, he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and when he was taken to be killed on 14 February he sent her a love letter signed “from your Valentine”.
How did Valentine’s Day start?
The first Valentine’s Day was in the year 496!
Having a particular Valentine’s Day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival.
The Romans had a festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February – officially the start of their springtime.
It’s thought that as part of the celebrations, boys drew names of girls from a box. They’d be boyfriend and girlfriend during the festival and sometimes they’d get married.
Later on, the church wanted to turn this festival into a Christian celebration and decided to use it to remember St Valentine too.
Gradually, St Valentine’s name started to be used by people to express their feelings to those they loved.
I have created posters for Christmas Party and now only the New Year’s Eve Party is left to do.
