This was a poster design I created for the Markham Board of Trade 2017 Annual Business Gala featuring original illustrations. Each year, the Markham Board of Trade partners with Humber to allow the students to create a design for their Annual Business Excellence Awards and each year is given a unique theme to work with. The theme that our class was given was ‘The Circus.’ As this was a design for a gala, I wanted to keep a sophisticated look while still having a fun and colourful circus feel. I choose to feature an acrobat to achieve this. The illustration I created the illustrations for the poster and used a bold colour palette to catch the eye of those that see it.
