These posters were designed as a way to display and advertise my own personal font creation, titled CheeryOhs. The CheeryOhs font was designed originally to be based loosely on a handwritten-style font. The more free flowing curves and thick to thin style strokes of each letter were designed to give the font a natural and playful feel.
In the posters, certain features that make the font unique, were chosen to be highlighted and emphasized through the imagery and information described on the poster. Each poster displays a variety of letters matching the featured demonstrated in the designated poster, and explains what makes the font unique and successful.
CheeryOhs is a very playful and lively font emphasized through its dramatic angled curves and variation in stroke weight. With the combination of the font’s pointed and angled edges, diagonal stress, and its thick horizontal finials, CheeryOhs achieves the goal of creating a fun and unique display type font.
CHEO Annual Report
One of the best ways for a company to build a positive reputation and strong image in the eyes of the public, their employees, and potential business partners is by publishing an annual report. Yet when it comes to the design of this information, it seems most companies have not yet explored their options and have not yet attempted to bring these types of booklets to their full design potential.
It is for this reason that I decided to redesign CHEO’s annual report booklet in a way that allows its reader to stay a bit more interested and follow through the information in an easier and more organized fashion.
Annual reports, especially those presented in Canada, often face another issue of the inclusion of multiple language layouts. The use of colour throughout the report, help to differentiate between the french and english sides of the report, and separate the information from the left side to the right.
One of the most well known horror movies when it comes to ghosts and supernatural events, is the movie Poltergeist. Recently, in 2015, a remake of the original classic was made, so I decided to remake my own version of the Poltergeist movie poster.
I chose to recreate to iconic image of a ghostly spirit, or poltergeist, emerging from an old static image TV screen, but from a different angle. I wanted to put the viewer in the shoes of the characters, making it seem almost as though the spirit was emerging from the poster itself.
By providing the viewer with a unique perspective, the poster is able to draw viewers in, in a whole new way. They put themselves in the scene creating a more in-depth relationship already to the characters being viewed in the movie.
Haunted Horror Night
Horror movies have a certain type of feel when it comes to their poster designs. Whether it’s through the images shown or the colour they’re made with, a certain mood comes to mind when you hear the word “horror.” For this particular project, I wanted to change the normal look you may see when it comes to horror.
This Haunted Horror Night event, does not provide a specific horror movie title that will be screened; rather they play an array of movies in the one night. For this reason, I did an illustrative style helping to maintain the mystery behind what movie may be screened. Whether it is an old or new movie, ghost or zombie, the image simply sets the mood of the Haunted Horror Night.
While it may not be a typical horror type poster, the illustrative style gives the event its own unique look and feel.
