The first assignment had 2 parts; the first part was to make a silent movie festival poster with the silhouetted images (which were traced from an original scans of various silhouetted images) utilizing the pen tool and the second part was text manipulation and placement. Overall, we had to showcase our creativity and our knowledge of unifying the poster's elements as one design.
I made many corrections that are not reflected on the poster, mostly due to the fact that it was my first time to use Illustrator. And it clearly shows. I was worried about not being able to follow the criteria that I forgot to correct the text or be creative wtih it.
The poster is an example of commercial illustration because it utilzes the simple use of still life images. The selection of the images relate to the theme as well. Greta Garbo was a famous actress in her time and was viewed as an ideal, compassionate and seductive woman and the poster reveals it with the images of couples.
