The assignment was to make a poster, using Gimp as a tool. To start I made a collage with the team Hollywood and Leonardo Dicaprio. The collage was later used as inspiration when I was making the poster.
The first step was drawing a picture of Leonardo Dicaprio and the Oscar statuette using a app called “sketchbook” and then downloading the picture into the Gimp program. I had to use a tool In Gimp called the magic wand to remove the background, making it possible to create my own background as a layer.
Then I stated the proses of making a background, using the Oscar statuette as the main picture with a red color in the background.
Next I added the picture of Leonardo Dicaprio to the layer and found the best placement.
After deciding on what the text should be I tried out different fonts to see which would be best to use in the poster.
Then I placed the Heading and subtext in its final positions. At last I tried different ways to compose the structure of the poster, trying the look whit one picture of Leonardo Dicaprio and two pictures of him and then moving around the pictures to see what looked the best.
In this assignment I have only used self-made pictures.
