I was tasked with designing a concert poster based on the genre drawn out of a hat. I drew out country, my least favorite, which the whole class found hilarious and ironic since I’m from Texas.
I may not love country music, but Dolly Parton is an icon, especially her hair. I let Dolly’s big, blond hair engulf almost the entire poster, allowing her profile to live in the bottom corner next to the concert info. She is usually seen in a vibrant outfit with her signature big smile, but I felt a calm face was more powerful. The concert date is for her Grand Ole Opry debut performance in Nashville where she lives.
The poster wowed the class and continues to be a favorite.
