Olympic Bobsled Poster

  • The challenge: collaborate on this poster with another graphic designer in this re-creation of a vintage poster. We problem solved on the color palette, deciding to try color correcting the aged poster to discover the original color palette. We divided the tasks, working on separate files and then merging them for the final product. I worked on the US flag, down the left side including the fans, the shaded snow area and the type. The original hand lettered font was indicated by choosing similar fonts and manipulated them. It was a treat to be chosen to work on the Lake Placid, NY Olympic poster, a venue close to my hometown.
