You will be designing the poster for my new comedy show "Schwarz auf Weiß" (roughly translates as "Black on White" in the sense of something being in writing. Please note that the title does not have a racial connotation in German.).
Maybe the design can have a HEADLINE / NEWSPAPER-LIKE AESTHETIC?
The show will be about the massive amounts of INFORMATION available to us today, the power of (Fake) NEWS and the POLARIZATION of society. Issues tend to be presented as black or white - we lack the shades of grey that make up the middle ground of compromise.
Your design will be printed in DIN A1 and DIN A2 format, and will be used to promote the show in comedy venues and around town.
You will work from ONE of three existing B/W photographs that will cover the whole poster - so your job is a lot about typography, spacing and the placement of the individual elements. Still: I'm looking for an IDEA, not just a LAYOUT. So get creative!
You can choose which of the photos best suits your design.
I have included the posters for my 2 previous shows to give you an idea of the style I am looking for. But please note that the accent colour for fonts should be different than in the previous poster.
ELEMENTS TO INCLUDE:
In descending order of prominence:
Most prominent item - my name: "Clemens Maria Schreiner"
Second most prominent - the title of the show: "Schwarz auf Weiß"
Third most prominent - comedy: "Kabarett"
Fourth most prominent - the director billing: "Regie: Leo Lukas"
Don't need to be very prominent. They should not form part of the natural reading flow for a viewer. This is information that should be visible to those really looking for it. The elements could be placed in one string along the side, or at the very bottom:
The photo credit: "Foto: Jan Frankl"
My management: "Kontakt & Management: Thomas Tröbinger"
My website: "clemensmariaschreiner.at"
DO NOT place any MAJOR elements in the bottom 10cm of the design. Venues might use that space for stickers anouncing the performance date and time.
If it suits the design, feel free to include a QR code linking to "http://rampensau.at"
I will need a layered PSD file in CMYK format.
I will also need the fonts used in the design.
Please create the file to the following specifications:
Color Profile: ISO Coated V2 300% (ECI)
TRIM SIZE: 1mm margin
LIVE COPY AREA: 6mm margin
