Successful poster designs communicate a clear message, makes you halt and look, then draw you into the finer details. As poster design connoisseurs we appreciate an illustrative style that is designed so well it perfectly matches a message. Posters are large canvases that give designers plenty of space to make masterpieces.
In this poster design session, you'll learn how to incorporate the right font for the needed text, compose an effective layout, mix your illustration and design skills, grab attention, and more. We'll be bringing you loads of articles, tutorials, and resources on poster design in this creative session - so get ready to design some super creative posters.
