This is a 11″ x 17″ poster I created for the “Money Smart Week” event at the ICPL coming up next month. Included in the events are several seminars and lectures that are open to the public. To entice people to attend these events, I wanted to make the poster eye-catching and straight to the point. Because the events are obviously focused on money, I went with the most straightforward graphics I could find. I first layered images of the back of a $100 bill as the background (13% opacity). I then added a similar opacity image of coins to the bottom of the poster and layered the text and colored blocks on top of the money layers. The “Money Smart Week” graphic is the logo of the events and was prominently placed at the top of the poster.
