Event Flyer Assignment
For this assignment, I designed a flyer for a real event. The event featured the spring 2017 graduates of NC State’s MFA in Creative Writing program, held every year in the Titmus Theatre in Thompson Hall. A major success for this project was applying styles and smart filters to the layers, especially text layers. I focused on making the text “pop” against a dark background. For example, I added both a Drop Shadow style and Stroke style to the vertical text to achieve emphasis against the stage curtain. Adding layer masks and styles was the highlight (and most enjoyable part) of the assignment. My intention was to create a simple, sophisticated yet eye-catching visual for a real event, and I believe that I achieved that goal for this assignment.
