A black and white flier to promote a leadership conference for college graduates.
In formulating the flier design I reminded myself of the message, to whom it was directed, and looked to the logos for inspiration. From 8 sketches over the course of 2 days, a design began to formulate. I then turned to Adobe InDesign to put the pen and paper sketches into a digital format. I used contrast in size and value to bring out the most important information, ensuring that one could get the critical information at a quick look. I applied repetition to the design through the use of lines. I did this by taking the logo’s gray stripe and using a similar one to separate the picture from the text and having the top and bottom be bold black lines. I spent more time making small design adjustments based on feedback than I did in placing everything into the design.
The message I am conveying is simple: come to this graduate leadership conference to get a competitive edge in business.
22-28-year-old college graduates who are entering the the corporate/business world for the first time.
Top Thing Learned:
Crucial to the success of the design process is to get feedback often and from different sources. Some feedback should be from the target audience, some from those with design experience, and some from the client.
