I looked at older style poster examples, because the old style US poster appear to have a lot of colour on them, giving a ‘happy’ vibe to the posters. I really like the use of bold and bright colours for the background, followed by the bold type overlaying it.
I noticed in the posters the type is often written in bold, and sometimes handwritten. Usually, a beige/cream background would have a red font, a red background would have a white font, and blue backgrounds would have white or black fonts.
The images are quite cartoon-like, going with the vintage theme. Although this may not work for our poster design, we could modernize it so that it fits with this time period specifically.
