The poster above was created to promote a book called "The Point of View". It uses metaphor to show that we might all be looking at the same thing, but our points of view will differ. This was one of the many pictures I took on Friday while I was on my Design Safari.
I had a great time walking around the centre of Belgrade with my camera. I looked for examples of good design (or at least the design I think is good) and this photo is my own personal favourite:
It is a bookstore sign. I don't know how well you can see it, but there are two people hugging and one of the people is... well, a book. It is a great metaphor once again, of course, though it is also a good example of unity. Colours work well together - the black and white of the book and the indigo blue of the "real person".
Looking at shops and banners in my neighbourhood, I was assaulted over and over by flashy fonts that just screamed at me. Private shop owners seem to believe that the louder your font is, the more customers will notice it. Which is why I like this one:
It says "Bread and Rolls", which in itself is an understatement, since inside you can find pies, sandwiches, cakes... "Bread and Rolls" is a brand name for a chain of bakeries. I love the simple black and white sign, the modest little name and the font used. Above all, I love their bread and rolls. And sandwiches. And cakes.
This is a poster for a theatre play:
The photo is my example for balance. I mean, just look at them.
I have been planning to take a picture of this for some time:
It says "Children are not a Commodity" and there is the Anti Trafficking Action SOS phone in the corner. It conveys a very strong message. If you zoom in, you will see the faces of the children on the right. And these will haunt you.
This is the door of a Swarowski shop:
There seem to be all colours of the rainbow blended in this star and the final result looks great.
The arrows in the following theatre poster replace the eyes and the mouth and they point at opposite directions, so I am using it as my example for good rhythm:
This poster advertising an international comic festival uses photos of real people to create the effect of a comic:
And I'll finish with the poster for the Belgrade Design Week. Not a very successful photo of mine, but I really like the poster:
