Student Lock-In Flyer- I designed various posters for Student ‘Lock-In’ events across the UK. The one shown on this page is my personal favourite. I used bold colours to achieve an eye catching effect on this flyer.
As with all of my print design – I tried to keep things as clear and simple as possible. The most crucial aspects of this kind of work are:
Function: One of the most common theories in design is that form must follow function, and this applies to all areas including illustration & character design. A design with a logical, simple form is more easily understood. Basic shapes like circles or squares often work best as the wireframe for a character or layout of the design because of their versatility and visual clarity.
Style: Contrast of shape, form or proportion is a great way to balance shapes and make the illustration interesting. The style of a illustration comes from the way in which the shapes that compose it blend together in a visually stimulating manner.
The Student Lock-In is an out-of-hours student shopping event that takes place bi-annually in April/May and during the freshers period in September/October. Click here to find out(HERE).
