Major Project #2- Travel Poster

For this assignment, we had to pick a city outside of North America to create a Travel poster to encourage people to visit the chosen country/city. We had to consider the atmosphere of the city we wanted to captivate. We had to be considered of color, we were limited to 4-6 colors for the final composition. I choose the City Reykjavik “is the capital and largest city of Iceland It is located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxan Bay. Its latitude is 64┬░08′ N, making it The world’s most northern┬ácapital of a sovereign state”. Reykjavik is the culture and nightlife of Iceland.

I super excited that I will have the opportunity to visit Iceland in May so in that spirit I decided to make this poster to commemorate my future visit to Reykjavik, Iceland. I also chose to create Iceland tallest building which is called Hallgrimskirkja Church, it is one of the city’s best-known landmarks and is visible throughout the city.

Frontal Plane

Perspective, converging lines, and vanishing points must be eliminated in flat space. Planes must be frontal, not longitudinal. The frontal plane emphasizes the two-dimensionality of the screen surface. The diagram reveals the frontal surfaces in the photograph. There are no longitudinal surfaces and the vanishing points have been eliminated.

Aerial Diffusion

For aerial diffusion to be an effective depth cue, there must be an object unaffected by the aerial diffusion and another object affected by the aerial diffusion in the same shot. The comparison between the two objects creates depth. In this shot the actor is walking outside on a snowing day, particles of snow falling. this creates depth along the road and her walking the direction.

Textural Diffusion

Normally, objects with more textural detail appear closer. If BG objects are given more textural detail, they tend to move forward or advance into the FG. FG objects that lack textural detail will tend to recede into the BG.
