Karel Martens Lecture Poster
This lecture poster was created with Karel Martens as the inspiration. I
wanted to try and recreate his use of CMYK, overlapping imagery, use
of a structured grid, and his use of patterns. The colorful orbs used to
create the pattern are pictures of a clear door knob, later manipulated in
photoshop. By rotating and overlaying the images I was able to create a
second element inside of the pattern using a dark reflection captured in
the doorknob. Connecting each reflection throughout the photo creates a
ribbon like look and feel that leads the eye from top to bottom.
By overlapping imagery I was also able to bring in new colors and play
with the typography. By changing opacities and transparency styles I was
able to seamlessly connect the two layers to look cohesive.
