This is the same style of web banner

This two are my final piece of this project, but before that actually I have tried a lot of thing and change many times the finally I did this. You can see in the background there are a lot of images of the hand holding an image and those are my process work it represent that’s my mistake before I done my work. All the mistakes became my successful final work, and I have said before in the requirement we can only use two colour so I chose this colour between maroon and red-wine and really dark red, and white doesn’t count because it is paper colour. This colour looks like represent mistakes and white can make a really strong contrast, and I made a white frame because I want people to focus on inside the frame when they first look at it. There is something I quite like first is the expressive typography like the “FUTURE, PAST and MISTAKES”, second is the images and the white frame both of them are around the quotes so people will concentrate in the middle.

Now I am going to talk about before I done what mistakes I have made.

This is another poster I did

Actually it looks quite special but what I think it too many white space so looks really empty, but at the same time I like the text made by the background, it is so simple but looks good.

hand-drawing quote

This I drew by hand, because I want to try more thing before I got any idea, I took ages to do that but at the I still didn’t use it and the reason is because it looks so messy I will so you and you will understand what I mean, when you just look at this black and white is really good but when it mixed with other things and colours it seem too much.You cannot see the background very clear also some of the text like disappear, so at the end I gave up, I put this on the other piece as well but still not as good as I think therefore, I decided not to use it.

This is the other piece I had tried, I cannot tell where is the problem but I can feel that isn’t right. Also I don’t really like it, maybe because of it looks too much but I am still not so sure. It is a very good experience, at least I have tried and let me know how it work how didn’t, I will keep this idea in my head because I think I can get inspiration on it one day. It will look good when it use in a right place so I have to keep explore until I found out the best way for using it.

At the end I did this and brought it to the presentation

This is my classmate thought

In the presentation the tutor gave me some suggestion to improve my work like some of the upper case and lower case of the text, the size of  the quote and the colours etc. Then my final piece came out, and the web banner before I didn’t know what to do so I try something out because my brain feel blank.


If you ask why I have to do that I can just tell you I don’t know, at that moment I just do different experimental hope I can got some inspirations on it. I did some research and tried it made those hole by using needle. Thus, I talk to the tutors and some of the classmates and they said that I can make a thing with similar style as that poster so I decided to make a web banner at the end. In the web banner I change the position of the text and images also I put them in different layer also I have adjusted the colour make it not look like the same, because if they look exactly the same then it is no point to make another one I can just copy that’s it.

On the below there are some of the relevant research for my ideas of this project:
