Up The Poles!

I was up at all hours last night (I didn’t go to bed until 11pm!) because I was busy preparing some visual material for tomorrow’s Circus Poster Design workshops in the Ark. I always spend a good bit of time researching, trying out the material and generally going over the format of the workshops to make sure they work out smoothly enough. But last night I really enjoyed myself: here I was designing posters again, bringing me back to my old job as a graphic designer (all 35 years of it) and I was really having a ball.

The circus posters I am inspired by are the ones from the wonderful Polish tradition of poster design (see above), so I have prepared many visual displays to show the children, however the trickiest bit is to make it possible for the children to design their own following the Polish’s style. I hope I will succeed and tomorrow will tell!

Meanwhile enjoy my production.
