This is my A4 test print. 🙂
The digital file.
The print out that we did from the print shop. I feel the middle one works best but Ina and I discussed and agreed that the background is too empty and need some textures.
Look forward to an update! 🙂
These are some of the layouts that I played around while trying to settle my final banner’s composition.
I realised that it’s quite difficult to create the banner while taking into consideration the length of the actual banner. Things need to be interesting when view as a whole but also not over-bearing where it feels congested when you look at it closed up.
I ventured the fairytale of “the little mermaid” not wanting to limit myself with the storyline but instead to focus on how it made me feel and to explore on that emotion instead.
With the quote “A sigh was the only sign of her deep distress, for a mermaid cannot cry.” I played with how eyes were used as motifs and also the incorporation of a skeletal mermaid instead of a “live” to heighten the emotion of grief and betrayal.
More exploration on how the mermaid could look like.
Going into the gaining but losing herself all for a pair of legs, I had fun creating this vectorized legs but I did not use them in the end.
