DUOS June 2008 poster design

The brief for this design for Durham University Orchestral Society was something that fitted in with Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, composed under the watch of the communist state in which he lived, whilst surreptitiously incorporating musical ‘messages’ that the outisde world could spot.

DUOS Poster for Shostakovich\'s 5th Symphony

Due to illness and a very busy period at work, the designs were a little rushed but I think they came out well in the end. It’s an adaptation of an original propaganda poster (if you hadn’t guessed).

    Love the design, great job Simon. What’s the font that you used for the title?

    Thanks. The title is in a free font called ‘Kremlin’ which can be found on http://www.dafont.com/ – possibly the best free font resource ever.
