Contest Entry: Poster 1. by darkdex52 Contest Entry: Poster 1. by darkdex52
This is the first Poster I made for a IRL contest our school is holding. It's about Latvian War of Independence (1918-1920), and this is about a historical event, when our President came back home on a ship called "Saratov".

Firstly, I love this poster.
The things that might be better is the fading gradient of the typography that comes over the image, the last two-three letters could stand out better at the bottom. And the text above "Ulmana Valdiba" should not hang on it, the lower letters (g, j, p etc) shouldn't come into the banner like they do. When you want text above this kind of banner again I'd make it a little more higher so the letters don't get in the way.
Other than that I see nothing wrong with this picture. I love the grainyness of the photograph, the old feeling you're clearly creating gets through. And the light texture of the background is brilliant.
Also love the colors in it.
What do you think?

This is an eat poster piece, especially with what has been done with the apparent aging effect. The colouring also seems to fit the types of inks commonly used on motivational propaganda posters from quick-print presses.
