advertising projects

I created some posters for 'Skittles' using acrylic ink and soft pastel. I wanted them to look fun, and colourful, without being to busy! using the slogan taste the rainbow, I developed my ideas.

I really liked the contrast of the black silhouette of the children against the bright colours in the background.

needs a bit more colour... development work

more development work, but my favorite of the three ideas.
