This week, we are working on forming our radio shows. We had to create a poster/logo/etc for it. Creating a poster for our radio show proved to be a lot of fun. The title is Noir Not the Father. Our radio show is a Maury style show, where Stella Vaughn is basically trying to cause drama between Ol’ Mick Bretton and Billy “Saw” Steele. They end up going on Stella’s show which is investigating the murder of Billy’s wife, Jackie, with Blair Morgan as the Crime Scene expert. Here is my final product:
I started with the silhouettes of the men. I edited them to make them seem smaller, like they were in the background. I then took the silhouette of the woman, who is representing Stella. She is a psychologist, and obviously they carry briefcases so this silhouette seemed to be appropriate. I layered them together, and then put the font on top as another layer. The Noir Not The Father is in Mrs. Monster font while with Stella Vaughn is in Always in My Heart. It took me a while to find fonts I actually liked, but I’m impressed with how this came out.
There isn’t too much detail, but I feel as though the simplicity of it still tells a story. It isn’t too much but it also isn’t too little. I used red, black, and white because to me those are the colors of Noir. They are dramatic and dark, which are important aspects of the Noir theme.
I am really excited for our radio show to continue to progress. I will be posting a progression post a little later this week!
