Pirates & Pricesses Event Poster Design

My brief for a poster design for the Great Central Railway`s Pirates and Princesses event involved combining the contrasting colours and elements traditionally related to Pirates and Princesses in one poster design.
Each theme takes up one side of the poster with reds and oranges on the pirates side contrasting with pinks of the princesses side the two contrasting sides are tied together with a seascape across the bottom of the poster which also features two children dressed as a pirate and a princess.

The Victory Show 2014

The Victory Show at Foxlands Farm Cosby, Leicestershire now in its 9th year, is the largest WWII experience extravaganza in the UK. Running over 3 days at the start of September the event features WWII military vehicles, a set piece battle, living history displays, an air show and much more. My short film aims to capture the atmosphere of the 2014 event and the set piece battle. French living history displays German and American vehicles feature in a tour of the event before the tanks roll on to the battlefield for action from the set piece battle, with the battle fought and won its time for celebration as we see a solider and his lady perform an impromptu dance to the music of the era.

Leicester Samaritans All Ears Poster

Designed for the Leicester branch of the Samaritans helpline as part of a campaign to  encourage people to volunteer for the charity my poster features the slogan we`re all ears and features butterfly made out of 'ear' shapes symbolising the release the people may feel after talking through their problems with a Samaritan.
The poster uses the Samaritans green colour scheme and adds complimentary colours such as brown and orange against a simple white background to grab peoples attention.
