ABOUT THE ART
Some friends and I just started planning a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark to watch the Danes take on Norway in a Euro 2012 qualifying match later this year. I then realized that I didn’t actually know where Denmark was in relation to the other Scandinavian countries. I decided to make this my next post topic.
See the full project here: http://www.designdiary.co.uk/2011/04/vintage-scando-poster/
The idea was to create a hybrid ‘vintage’ poster / info-graphic that looked like it could have been found in a an eastern European geography book in the 70′s. I created the shapes and overall composition in Illustrator before using Photoshop to add texture and layer styles.
There will definitely be more in this ‘Scando’ series as I get more excited about the up-coming trip!
