This is the poster that I designed with friend graffiti artist Wize One Wesam Shadid for our art graffiti and space themed exhibition Sbace 3arabi at Zara Gallery, in Amman, Jordan.
Graffiti Artist Wize One Wesam Shadid created the font for the title of our exhibition.
This is the sketch that I scanned in order to trace.
The traced type / title on Illustrator. Fun process.
Time for some Photoshop. First we were going to use a portrailt of a Space Girl with a Helmet but since that did not work I changed the design to having a Space Girl sitting atop the font.
I wanted a Spacey feel, which is why I decided to go with an 80s retro-font and some design elements like the box behind the title.
After I felt comfortable with the title and placement, few more elements like distress and paper erosion were added.
I also started coloring and adding texture to Wize One's type design.
What I loved most about working on this poster is because it was for our exhibition Sbace 3arabi that opened at Zara Gallery in Amman, Jordan.
The curator of the exhibition Tariq Nazzal gave us a lot of creative liberty.
It felt so good to hold our creative fate within our own hands :-})
