Why Everyone Should Own A Poster

B34

My bedroom, once an empty and dull room now glows vibrantly thanks to the many posters that are plastered to the wall. The first time I got my hands on a poster was when I was gifted a lifelike graphic of a T-Rex from Jurassic Park, which was one of my favorite movies at the time (still is). I remember a feeling of awe running through my body as I stared in utter disbelief at the dinosaur in all its glory. I hung the poster on the wall opposite the door, so it would be the first thing a person would see upon entering the room.

As time passed, my fascination with posters grew to such an extent that I didn’t wish to leave a single blank space in the wall, but rather make sure that it was covered with a poster. Soon enough, every inch of the walls was covered with a variety of posters, ranging from music and movies to sports and quotes. My exhibit of posters gained much attention from friends and family, who admired the quotes and related to many a TV show or movie. However, not everyone shared my enthusiasm about the posters; soon after the craze that accompanied Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight (2008), my room’s new spectacle was a life size poster of Heath Ledger’s joker writing a bloody message on the wall.

Upon walking into the room and witnessing this somewhat disturbing image, my longtime science tutor nearly fainted in a frenzy of fear. Fortunately, I was let off the hook, but not before a twenty-minute lecture on disturbing images and their harmful consequences, which took a lot longer than it should have, partly because of my interrupting fits of laughter. Nevertheless, the posters usually elicited positive responses from visitors and encouraged me to expand my collection, which now includes more than thirty posters.

While some might see posters as intrusive and inartistic, I respectfully disagree. With the help of posters, my room converted itself from a dull and soulless place to a display of creativity and passion, where each poster reflected an interest or an ambition I so strongly associated myself with. While almost all my posters have been replaced with newer ones, the poster of a T-Rex still hangs above the bed, ever so magnificently, reminding me of the first time I saw a poster and the inspiration it instilled in me.

So what do you think about posters and their relevance in ones life? Let me know! :)

1. How did you get into graphic design / illustration?

I was interested in all kinds of art, whether it be painting, sketching, product designs or  architecture when I was young. But I learned only one thing and that was sketching and always kept my love for other forms of art as well. After reading about everything from science, literature, poetry, philosophy, music, I felt Graphic Design is something I want to spend some time on. It feels like home and I am happy to be a Graphic Designer.

2. How would you best describe your style of artwork?

It’s all minimal, pop art, inspired by comics.

3. What is your design process, from where do you start your artwork?

I start with rough sketches to get the idea of what i want. Then goes some basic research about the idea. I start sketching ideas. Whether it be typography or illustration. After that i scan it and upload it. Then it depends on two things. If it looks as it is I’ll use and add colors and modify it. If it doesn’t, then based on the layout I finish the design which can be same or completely different.

And sometimes if project demands a deadline, i create and finish it directly on PS.

4. What tools do you use for your artwork?

PS + wacom + pencils + pens + sketchbooks and lots of coffee.

5. How do you stay inspired?

I surf design blogs and collections, but instead of surfing all the time i spend time only when I feel like. As I believe if I’ll be able to absorb even 10% of what i see and learn something from it and keep it in my memory, I’ll be happy.

6. What do you do when not working?

I read a book, catch a movie in weekends or play my favorite game 8 ball pool, which these days is getting replaced by brand new game Smash Hit.

7. Do you have any advice for young designers?

Don’t be afraid if you feel like your work is not good, just keep working. You’ll learn new things as you keep on going.
