Quick experiments in stencil cut posters. Using bold shapes and bright colours together to create the poster design.
My idea for the Creative Conscience project was to make a D.I.Y. protest poster kit. The kit includes letters and symbols which could then be used to create a poster. The idea focussing on giving people their own voice and a way in which to use it. I decided to include a selection of symbols which could be arranged onto the posters as well.
I wanted an emphasis to be on protesting for the positive rather than dwelling and emphasising the negative. I chose bright colours in order to add a lightness to the posters.
To make the kits, I created stencils for exposing the screens and then screen printed the different colours. Overall, I was pleased with the outcome although it was incredibly time consuming and if I were to create a number of kits, this methos wouldn’t be feasible.
