For our Posters brief we were asked to explore print and create a poster. I wanted to use a play on words relating to London. One of the most common phrases used around London is “Mind the gap!” on London Underground. “Mind the gap” is an audible or visual warning phrase issued to rail passengers in the United Kingdom to take caution while crossing the horizontal, and in some cases vertical, spatial gap between the train door and the station platform.
Another comically British issue is bad weather. Its currently grey and raining outside so I decided to focus on the shitty weather and came up with the phrase Mind The Rain.
I want to use a mixture of letter press for the text and lino cut block printing for the rain drops. Ive created a smaller A4 coloured with ink, but need to experiment with letter press and layout much more before I get to a final piece.
Ive started testing some letter press ideas as well.
