This is what I’m currently working on. It’s a poster for a movie that a fellow student is creating. The movie is about issues that coloured people face in their everyday lives. I used different pics of coloured people to create the backround and I used the layer blend mode in photoshop to create the effect of the female in the foreground.
What happened to 8.tas’ wonderful big budget adverts? Remember the emo kid ad or the billboard ads that were created by am I collective?
