Aim : To create an illustrated poster for use as a wedding guest book. Every guest invited writes his/her name onto it.
Spec : About 80 people invited so about 80 repeated elements on the poster or 80 blank spaces. Printed in A2
Style Inspiration : Jules Verne, steampunk, Nantes’ Machines de l’Ile, Alphonse Mucha
Guest Book Inspiration : Tree (guests write their names on the leaves), pile of books (guests write their names on the covers)
I started by sketching a few different options: luxurious vegetation, old cogs, fishes and diving suit, strange machine, planets. Chloe really liked the idea of the old cogs.
I tried a few different lettering options for their names in the centre.
I painted some old cogs in watercolor and arranged them on a page to get an idea of what the final poster would look like.
