We have been having really fascinating discussions with each other, and our tutors – really reflecting on the comparison between Capitalism and Communism. Its all quite theoretical at the moment, we have each been creating work in response to the issues that we have been discussing – our next step is to amalgamate these and create a final outcome.
In our discussions we first considered creating a sort of Propaganda book , creating imagery and posters and collating them in a book format. However, we reflected on this and felt that a poster would be more in keeping with the sort of imagery we were looking at, the majority of advertising and propaganda that we had found through our research was conveyed in a poster format – the necessary message was condensed into one image, so we felt this is the direction that it would be best to go down.
These were some of the posters that we looked at before making the decision to create a more condensed style of poster – we considered the layouts, colour sheme and imagery chosen and placed of these posters before beginning to design our own.
