Check out jpatrily's Poster contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
We are the oldest student organization on the Michigan campus, and the second oldest collegiate choir in the country. We are a choir of about 100 guys who celebrate tradition, camaraderie, and musical excellence. This concert, led by the new director of the Men's Glee Club, Mark Stover, features a program titled, "In College Days." This concert hopes to temporarily bring people back to simpler days and showcase the power of music to give us solace.
What's your vision?
This will be a poster promoting our spring concert. This is our 159th annual spring concert at the historic Hill Auditorium. We expect almost 3 thousand people in attendance. The theme of the concert is "In College Days.”. We want a poster that really embodies that theme. To us, “In College Days” makes us think of the introspection that comes with time. We want a poster that feels “retro.” The last thing we want is a typical concert poster that you’d see at any old concert. We want it to stand out and really feel like it’s harkening back to older times. We don’t want to give any specifics about colors, style, layout, etc. because we want to see what ideas you can come up with! To inspire you, we've attached some reference posters that we like. the style of. We’ve also made a pinterest board with different images that we think reflect the theme of our concert and maybe provide some beginning ideas for our poster. These images shouldn’t be included directly, but rather serve as inspiration. https://pin.it/7l24kfnggwnkq3
We have a few things that must be included on the poster. They all will be attached to the contest, as well as in this Google Drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1VwlREHAUnMa3Jhg3GniVCX11qPVBbz1b?usp=sharing Required to include: -First is our "key". It's our logo, and has been for many years now. -Second is the time, location, and date of our concert: April 13th, 2019 at 8pm. Hill Auditorium. -Third is the link to buy tickets: bit.ly/mgcw2019 -Fourth is the name of our musical director, Professor Mark Stover -Fifth is the name of the concert "In College Days" -Sixth is the fact that this is our 159th spring concert Optional to include: -Our "signature". It's basically just another logo. It is in the Google Drive folder. -"Featuring the Friars". They're an a cappella group that is a subset of the Glee Club, and they perform at all our concerts. We would really prefer it if you could include this, but if you can’t then it’s not a huge deal. Be creative! We want to see designs that are a little different than your typical poster.

I love that the designer, Evocative saw our vision of the book cover and simplified it. We requested a small change to his original draft and he quickly made the change. I showed a few people the second draft cover and they all said they would read the book based on the cover. Ultimately, people will peruse the book if the cover is enticing and more inclined to consider purchasing the book. Evocative was very patient, waiting for me to determine the formatted page count so that he could adjust the spine width accordingly. The price for the ebook and softcover book designs was very reasonable for the quality of his work. I would recommend Evocative to anyone. I can't thank him enough for such a wonderful book cover.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
