IN TODAY’S DIGITAL age, many designers reflexively consider posters to be a lost art, an anachronistic remnant of the industrial age and certainly not a part of today’s interconnected information-based society. You can’t blame them, though. The modern era of instant info, with its targeted ads, begs the question: Why go through the trouble of printing ads on paper and hanging them around town, when you can easily push mini-versions of the same ads directly into customer’s phones, and by extension, their eyes?
Because posters, when done correctly, are singularly effective. The larger format enables a richer, detailed and more eye-catching message. Posters create a tangible sense of excitement that pop-up ads just can’t match.
As with all things sign-related, it comes down to proper design. Does the graphic convey the message and catch attention? If so, the poster can embed itself in the viewer’s memory in ways that no email attachment ever could.
Poster design offers a lot of room for creative expression. When designing a poster, push your limits, flex your talent and remember to have fun. This approach will propel the medium’s relevance through this century and beyond. As with everything else in life, the only limit is your imagination.
