Project Description

I'm into patterns a lot lately. How different patterns are juxtaposed to create a new pattern—that's what gave me the idea of using different patterns on my poster. And since the patterns were adding enough visual noise already, I wanted to utilize negative space for creating basic yet intricate shapes to delineate the cropped section of a bike. In a way, the patterns represent the different conditions a cyclist faces: the dotted pattern resembles dust and noise, the dashed pattern mimics rain, and both angular patterns symbolize leaves and snow. Also, it has metallic ink. I mean, who doesn't like metallic ink, right?

Production Lesson(s)

With all the different patterns and cuts, I was concerned with the registration as it needed to be perfect for the negative space to cleanly delineate the bike, but Vahalla Studios did a fantastic job!”
