I have created this poster using Adobe Photoshop. I wanted something quite grim as I have learned some new tricks in Adobe Photoshop and wanted to test them. I have created a horror movie, drama and thriller, but not fairy tale and the Grimm’s works seemed perfect.
The Twin Brothers is a German fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm, tale number 60. It is Arne-Thompson type 567A, the magic bird heart, and type 303, the blood brothers.
After creating this grim poster I suddenly interested if the word grim is some how related to the Grimm Brothers. Here is what I have found.
Two famous uses of the adjective grim are the Grim Reaper and Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Mr. Reaper shows up in movies and books wearing a long, hooded black cape and carrying a scythe, or long-handled blade used, in less grim circumstances, for mowing grass and reaping grain: he represents death. The real-life German brothers wrote some bone-chilling tales under their own name, Grimm, meaning “cruel, fierce,” which is related to the English word grim. Modern grim things include crime-drama images of dead bodies and characters in horror movies.
I have created this poster using Adobe Photoshop. I wanted to try something else as I think the food industry is getting more and more prominent.
Eating a healthy, balanced diet plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy weight, which is an important part of overall good health. Being overweight or obese can lead to health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease and stroke.
I see the quote above as extremely valid.
This is my green version above. The table itself doesn’t strike as very healthy colour, but I like the colour combination.
I am posting this new movie poster. Well the theme is dramatic again and this time London is featuring in it. Experience told me I am not genius and I still need to learn a lot so this poster as the previous one was created with help of a tutorial. It is not an exact copy, but result is very similar the original I was learning from.
With this information revealed I can’t take all the credits for it’s creation.
I think I am going to stop making these posters, but I am having far too much fun with it. This one is a drama movie. In the future I will have to work more on the credits of the movie meaning fake credits.
I have recently discovered I quite enjoy creating these horror posters. It is quite funny to keep turning myself into these monsters just using Adobe Photoshop. You may have guessed I follow tutorials while creating these so that means I can’t take all the credits. I have been thinking about it is not 100% moral or ethical, but the artists in the pasts or present learned by copying the old masters.
I will not put the link here as I can’t avoid showing the tutorial too and that would mean comparing my version with the one the video and I don’t like the thought of comparison. I might do more posters using the skills I have learned, but fo now this should be enough.
I will share with you the name of the the tutorial so you can go and try it too.
I was working very during the whole and some of the made things I just don’t feel like sharing with anyone, but the stuff I have produced the last day of the course I am actually very happy with.
During past we week we were mainly focusing on making the design by hand to start with and I actually enjoy this way of working very much. I always had an impression it is much quicker on the computer, but that it is not true the results are better with the beginnings of the design process done by hand.
On our our last last day we were given brief to design a Tate poster for all 4 locations. We were provided with material such as a text and some images. I have always lived with impression that graphic design is something I can easily do, but hand on a heart I have never really done it the proper way and this course has just showed there is still lots to learn.
I have taken a photos of the whole group posters so you can see them too. Below is the photo from the group.
It is always striking to see how many different ideas people have I think they are all absolutely great “design frenzy”.
