J'adore poster


poster design

This fun piece advertises a long-running Valentine's weekend extravaganza, which features performances by famed local burlesque dancers and drag queens. The act is a humorous, flirtatious, and dazzling homage to love of all kinds.

Here I wanted to create something really eye catching and bold, as posters for this type of event are often displayed on telephone poles, bars, coffee shops, and other busy locations where they have to compete with hundreds of other flyers. The simplicity and playfulness of bright pink outrageously proportioned curves which mimic a heart grab the viewer instantly. The headline and important show information are nicely integrated into the picture by following the shape of a long luxurious feather boa draped around a performer's neck.
