Halloween Project 2015

Halloween Project 2015

Due Date:  Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Homework-128Your work should be presented in two type of files:

  • 3 files in PDF (Photoshop)
  • 1 jpeg lightweight file to post in your wordpress.

With your classmates, take a few pictures of yourself and use it with other images of your choice to create a poster on the occasion of Halloween.
If for personnel reasons you do not agree with such images, then make a poster with similar special effects to those taught in the tutorial below, I mean “masking”, resizing, overlapping, etc, but do not do it exactly like that tutorial, your job has to be different and text included.

Your work should be presented in two types of file:
PSD (Photoshop) to see the layers and effects you applied and a “jpeg file” for your WordPress.

The sizes for PHOTOSHOP files must be:


  • Small– 11” x 17”

    This is a smaller standard poster size they are ideal for street lights, bulletin boards, and generally putting up on businesses without taking up too much room and offending. These also work the best with a minimalist approach to text. Big letters big message.

    Top Uses: – Movies
    – Concerts, Events, Entertainment venues

  • Medium  18 “ x 24”

    A little more information can be displayed on this standard poster size. I would still recommend some minimalism and little text. These posters are mainly seen as small adverts on university residence floors, doctor’s offices, construction walkways and bulletin boards.

    Top Uses: – Celebrity Posters, University Dorm Posters, Bands
    – Special occasions, birthdays, etc.

  • Large– 24” x 36”

    This is one of the most common standard poster size (Super A1). These posters are used for most applications including outside of events, trade shows, and malls. Also widely used for small movie posters delivered to fans and posters for decoration like in University residences and outside a pub or club.  With these types of posters you will be grabbing attention with a large message and you can include further details in small writing so after the message is received people can choose whether to come closer and learn more.

    Top Uses: – Trade Shows
    – Outdoor advertising
