"UpStart is a non-profit arts collective which aims to put creativity at the centre of public consciousness during the Irish General Election Campaign in 2011. We plan to do this by reinterpreting the spaces commonly used for displaying election campaign posters in Dublin City and are calling on all artists to submit work for this exhibition."

Elida's banners

Hey everyone, here's my first submission of banners for Tinderbox. I've been messing about with making a typeface & layering textures in Photoshop to give a kind of vintage screenprint effect. I've done 2 options, a colourful one & a more muted one cos I thought the colour one might look a bit kiddy?
I'll probably have a go at another banner in a different style, how's everyone else getting on?!
