Assignment: D&AD Submission – Ministry of Sounds Saturday Sessions
I was happy with my final design and managed to get it complete for the D & AD deadline so i could submit them. After some several weeks of helpful critiques i was able to add in the final tweaks to the design in order to make it really work.
This is a series of 3 posters i made for a recents D&AD submission, rather then a generic ‘club’ posters, i wanted to try somthing a little different and conceptually stronger. While they still retains some aspects of a traditional poster the idea behind the designs are quite strong.
