Long time no post, eh? Sorry this post isn't logo related, ha. Quip aside, I just recently enlisted in the US Army (just yesterday in fact!), and I knew going into it that there was going to be a lot of things to memorize before OSUT (A variant of Basic Training). So, I set out to find cool images to help me memorize stuff, i.e. the Soldier's Creed, General Orders, etc., because I tend to memorize things more quickly if there's an image attached to it. But unfortunately, most of the stuff that I found on Google just looked outdated and not pleasing to the eye. So I took it upon myself to create a few poster/wallpaper like designs. The first one I did, and the one I'm most proud of, is a poster of the Soldier's Creed: Second, is the LDRSHIP acronym: ^I kind of modeled the style of this one on some graphics the Army's social media often posts. Next, are the General Orders: I'm not too happy with this one, to be honest. I feel like it's lacking in a sense, and I had a really tough time putting together typefaces for this one. So if anyone has advice on how I could improve it if I gave it a next go around, or even font suggestions, feel free to shoot your shot. Next, we have an enlisted rank and insignia poster: Technically, it's missing one rank (Private [PV1][E-1] ), but because that rank does not have an insignia, I didn't feel like it included. Lastly, is a little graphic for the Army's semi-official (or just official? I'm not entirely sure, so don't take my word for it) song: And now for a bonus round, I have some graphics for the phonetic alphabet, and the military Code of Conduct. I wanted to include these, but not with the others, as I only really spiced them up with a background. Excluding that, the rest of the design for these are not my work: That's all for now, your thoughts are appreciated : )
So for any followers of my 1930's Animation Style NHL Series, this is that on a much grander scale. After a little advice from the great Brandon Moore, I decided to just go whole hog with my deep, deep love of all things retro and, of course, sports and turn that series into this: Introducing my Through the Decades Gameday Poster Series! Roughly every week I'll be posting a poster design for a soon upcoming game based on a totally random draw of league (NHL, NBA, MLB and NFL, with odds slightly adjusted for season) and decade (20's/30's, 50's, 70's and 80's/90's). It's an amazing vehicle for creative possibilities, and I hope to make each poster as distinctly unique as possible. The first of the series is for Friday's Game 4 matchup between the (Las)Vegas Golden Knights and the Winnipeg Jets in the style of a 1950's concert poster, like one you might've found in mid-century Vegas advertising Elvis Presley or Fats Domino. As most of these will be, it's type forward, with an added focus here on the "floating heads" that filled the original show posters. Hope you like the new idea and first entry, thanks for watching and stay tuned!
