Party in Pink

This poster may be an advertisement for a sauna party, but the photo used in the background is of a group of swimmers getting ready to jump into the frigid waters of Newport, Vermont this past February as part of the the annual . The photo was taken by Jessica Rinaldi of the Boston Globe. I liked the juxtaposition of the topics, but it’s also appropriate because after taking the dive participants celebrate together in a nearby sauna.

I used Krita to create this poster by importing the background image from https://www3.bostonglobe.com/news/bigpicture/2020/03/07/polar-plungers-photos-ice-swimming-new-england/i1vdJzcWycJBcZpOjPLaRI/story.html?p1=BP_MainPhoto&arc404=true, which is part of the Boston Globe’s “The Big Picture” project. Because the remix card for this assignment was called Pretty in Pink, I made the text over the image pink and added a couple other design elements. I also added a small white shadow to the words and some small white stripes in the corners. I tried to follow the perspective lines in the photo with the angle of the text, though I’m not sure I quite succeeded.
