Event advertisement displaying information for an open mic night at local ice cream place. Used a full color bleed on the page, Microsoft word, and a scanner at school.
I scanned a picture from my favorite magazine yearly compilation. I then cropped the picture out of the page and put it in word, adjusted the colors and contrast to make the colors stand out a bit more. Then I typed the text and aligned it. I used two different fonts to contrast the title and the body text. I put transparent colored boxes behind each group of text to incorporate a color scheme and make the black page a little more exciting. All of the text is white and aligned to the left side of the page. I used Microsoft word, a scanner, and online pdf and jpg converters to print and post in the desired fashion.
Open Mic night is a fun activity for young adults to attend in a college town. I thought this color scheme would make the weekly event look interesting, fun, relaxing, and like many younger people would want to go to experience it as well as donate to a great cause that is based locally.
Young adults, teens, college students in Rexburg, music lovers.
Top thing learned:
I learned how to scan images and how to format them on the scanner as well as converting them between Word, PDF, and JPG. It was pretty complicated at first! I also “learned” about going to the local print shop to get the quality paper and print. I hadn’t been there before and it was intimidating before I went in. Turned out great with friendly and helpful employees!

Scanned images used, sources, original sizes:
The image I originally scanned was from Rookie Magazine, Yearbook Two. The image was originally 4″ x 6″. I scanned it at 300 resolution because I enlarged the image so it could fit across the top of the page. The image now is 3.8″ x 8.8″
