In the second half of today’s session, using what we had learned in the morning, we were asked to create 2 movie posters using simplified pictorial imagery via design. 

From the explanation above we were asked to choose one element and one principal to apply to our movie poster.

I chose to use the movies Reservoir Dogs and 12 Angry Men. Firstly for Reservoir Dogs I applied the element; colour and for the principal; pattern. I generated some sketches to put the designs principals to use. IMG_1618

I then took my ideas into Photoshop. Focusing on the names of each character of the film; Mr. Brown, Mr. Blue, Mr.  Pink, Mr. Blonde, Mr. Orange and Mr. White.
