Orchestra Poster refinements

In an earlier post I mentioned I was working on a promotional set of poster, flyer, ticket & newspaper ad, for the Northern Rivers Symphony Orchestra (click here to recap). We were doing this in Harry’s class for the conductor/founder of the orchestra who was having trouble attracting new/ young people.I liked the poster, especially the colours as they are unusually bright, but the font was a bit ‘blocky’, so I have just re-designed it with a better result, I think. have a look & tell me what you think.

Adobe CS5 Roadshow

The Adobe Roadshow to promote the new CS5 suite was in the city in Brisbane, another student and myself went along to see what they had to show for themselves. It was well presented and organised with all the speakers happy and working to a tight schedule. They kept us entertained by communication one on one with the audience and bribing us to join in by giving away many a rubics cube to people with good suggestions or correct answers.

I took a few notes during the conference and will share my experience with you now, sadly none of the photos I took turned out well enough to publish but (I hope they don’t mind) I have borrowed a photo of each speaker from the Semi-Permanent facebook site just so I could remember them better, and show them to you. THANKS to semi-Permanent.

The venue was sold out and we were lucky to get seats together with a good view of the speaker and screen, there ended up being 21 of us and we did walk in a little late. The first speaker was Louise from Frankie magazine who gave us some helpful hints and tips on how to survive in the world of design – this is great as it is what we Read the rest of this entry »
