So like I said, I wasn’t entirely happy with the poster that I made yesterday, so I redid it. I’m much happier with this one than the other one. I was trying to do some weird modern meets old school clash that was way too complicated. So I just simplified, and I think I accomplished my original goal better.
I don’t know if this counts as posting everyday, though. Maybe this is a half-a-poster?
Anyways, I like the color scheme a lot better on this one and I think I have figured out an export process that preserves the quality when going from inDesign to something I can upload and display on the blog. This way, I won’t have to go through the trouble of also uploading a PDF document, because really, that’s a little unnecessary.
I feel productive. It’s not even noon yet! I got up at 8 am today! It’s a Saturday! I feel old.
About the Poster: The image is a photograph (taken by me) of William Rush’s bust of General Winfield Scott that is displayed as a part of the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. The typeface used is Sorts Mill Goudy by Barry Schwartz, an open source font distributed by the League of Moveable Type.
