As a part of our study of typography, we were told to design an event poster using various Adobe software like InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. We were limited to using the font we created previously, as as well as a secondary font. When considering a concept for the poster, the event and overall theme of the poster needed to complement our font.
Looking at my typeface, I felt that it would do well with a Roaring 20’s theme attached to it. After finding my theme, I did research and eventually chose to create a poster for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute gala, which was held in New York City in 2005. The theme for that year was “The House of Chanel”, paying tribute to Coco Chanel and her century-long fashion legacy, which hit its stride in the 1920’s.
