Vector Graphics- Gig Poster

My concept was to create a gig poster for a genre type of music, that tells what the night will be like but artistic at the same time. My objective was to appeal to people who like indie/folk/rock music. An example of bands that I used as an inspiration was Hozier, the Head and the Heart, and Daughter. My target audience will mainly attract the millennial generation and people who like acoustic music.

The picture above is the sketches I used for my first design. I was originally going to make a gig poster with a girl with a skull face and flower crown. But after looking through my design I decided this was not what I wanted and decided to try something else.

The picture above is the start of my second gig poster. Here I have used pen tool create the outline of my mountains. I also already created the border, along with the rectangle for the sky and grass.

I then copied that design but cutting pieces out and resizing to fit right with the mountains. I am also using a color scheme I found on google.

In this picture, I was deciding on making the moon look different. I decided in the end not to. At this point, I add color to the grass around the mountains. In this picture, I was also wondering what to do with the grass on if I should add more dark green colors.


I talked to three of my classmates and asked them on their opinion. I was suggested to change my font and readjust my mountain on the left side. They also suggested fixing two legs of my wolf, since it looked a little too round for a leg. I did do all of this.

Final Product

This is my final product. I created the wolf by using a reference I found online and sketched it out in my book. I then re-sketched the wolf in the forms of shapes to help me build the wolf in Illustrator. When creating the wolf I mainly used circles to create the wolf and then used the shape builder tool to eliminate shapes I didn’t need. I then used the white arrow tool to adjust anchor points to the correct shape needed. For the texture, I found a texture picture online and converted it to a vector graphic. Then added the vector graphic to my poster. Overall I am proud of the work I have done. I do wish I had more time but I am glad that was able to create something different from the norm.
