Title: Martinez 4th of July Celebration
Project: Design a 11" x 17" poster that will be used
to market the (first in seven years) 4th of July Celebration. The
celebration is sponsored by some large corporations, and the poster
is to reflect an upscale involvement, at the same time, it is to
have a fun look to attract visitors.
In this poster, certain elements were designed into the background
for both texture, and interest. These include:
13 stars (representing the initial 13 U.S. Colonies) in
the upper left corner (shown bordered by 2 smallest stars).
The remaining stars equal 50 stars.
The large background text is the complete Star Spangled
In the lower left section is text explaining the colors
and shapes of the flag.
One piece in a three-piece campaign of promotional event marketing
including a color newspaper ad (different proportions), and a black/white
newspaper ad (different proportions).
Client: Martinez Chamber of Commerce
