Contest Poster Design // #SMSsummit

Conference, Trade Show + Expo Design

I was tasked to create a 24×36 sign to display at the upcoming Social Media Strategies Summit Chicago (#SMSsummit) to alert attendees that they can “Win a Google Home”.  The attendees had to take a photo with a new friend and post to their social media, such as Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

I wanted a propaganda style poster and ultimately came up with this design above showing two hands (you + your new friend) eagerly grasping their mobile devices and ready to take on the task. I created a vector illustration of the Google Home device and added it into the design.

FONTS: Museo Slab 900, Lobster 1.4, Museo Sans 700 & 500.

The client came back with several revisions, including replacing the image and moving the content up more and to make it bigger. The revisions created this below colorful sign.  What’s your take on this? Please leave comments below.
