Come to Hollywood!

I’m so excited to tell you about my latest art project!  Our assignment was to create a poster and brochure for a trip.  We had to design and put together a box to hold the brochures that attached to the poster, creating a free standing display.  We could pick any place and any time period for our trip, so (this will be a big surprise to everyone I’m sure!) I chose to take a trip back in time to 1940 Hollywood.  I picked 1940 specifically because I wanted to have my vacationers be able to see some of the charmed 1939 films in Graumans.  I looked up when these films were playing in theaters, and 1940 was when most of them were actually released.

So, here’s the finished piece:

When all the brochures are taken…

there is a small spot behind the brochures with contact information for the travel agency (fictitious in this case).

The brochure.  These are layout images, so you kind of have to use your imagination as to how they fold up.  I wanted you to be able to read the copy, so I uploaded them this way.

It was such a fun project to design.  I got to take my file for the poster to a professional printer and see my project come to life.  It was truly a thrilling experience (in a geeky graphic design sort of way).  :)

I’d be so grateful for any feedback you’d like to offer.  I am well prepared to take constructive criticism.  My feathers don’t ruffle easily, so don’t be afraid of offending me.
