Lisa and I collaborated on a new poster for her next gig at the darkroom in Christchurch. The wallpaper and beautiful vintage bee are courtesy of the Internet.
This was the first poster I designed for Lisa — before there was a change of plan (Plan Bee). So although it won’t be used, I thought I’d post it anyway… The background and vintage woman were originally found online. I recreated them using ink and digital magic.
There is currently an exhibition of Fairtrade coffee projects by Design and Arts College graphic design graduates at Addington Coffee Co-op in Christchurch. The exhibition marks Fairtrade Fortnight and will run from 5–20 May.
The idea behind my campaign is that Fairtrade Fortnight is a celebration of fair play. With this in mind, I decided to play with the word ‘fair’. The sun motif refers to a fair day while bright colours and cheerful flags suggest all the fun of the fair.
