    Remix Part 2

    For my second remix assignment I remixed an assignment that I already created. This assignment is the Minimalist Tv Poster. When I originally created this assignment I only used the E.T finger to stick to the minimalism part of the assignment. Now I added a bit more to coincide with the remix. This remix asks […]

    Minimalist Movie Poster

    For this assignment, I had to make a movie or tv poster in a minimalist way. I decided to do one for the movie Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. The movie is definitely a tear-jerker, but one of my favorites. The assignment was linked in this week’s “weekly assignment” blog so I thought I’d give it a go! It was a pretty easy assignment overall, but it required you to think. I chose a picture of a DVD because in the movie the main character, Greg, and his best friend, Earl, make their own versions of classic or foreign movies. When Rachel, the dying girl, gets diagnosed with cancer, they begin to make movies for her- hence the DVD in my poster. I was originally going to use a picture of all the movies that Greg and Earl made, but after looking at other examples from people who had already done the assignment, I realized that picture wouldn’t meet the minimalist requirement. I used Canva to make the movie poster. I would definitely suggest this site to graphic design beginners! There are so many tools and cool designs on there, and it makes the process REALLY easy and fun! I selected the poster template and then selected a grey background. I put in my own text and cropped it the way it looks now. When I chose the DVD image, it was red and orange, but I felt like the best way to keep with the minimalist theme was to keep the colors neutral. The great thing about Canva is that you can change the colors of images you want to add to your design. I would definitely suggest this assignment to other students in the class!
