This piece was created for a university project. I had to design three graphics to represent three of The Planets, Gustav Holst's orchestral suite. The graphics needed to be 20cm by 20cm and contain a 14cm diameter circle in the center, other then that I could only use colour and typography...O' and my tutor said he'd prefer it if they didn't have a similar style.
The Planets (Left to right)
Mars - The Bringer of War
I used the circle to create a launch button and surrounded it with war poetry. The background text is a list of wars since 1991 (the year I was born). The fonts are simple like those used in old war posters.
Venus - The Bringer of Peace
Using the font from the "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters I made an alternative, less cliche format for that quote achieving a peace and quiet them. With a Beatles quote around the edge, I always found that sound calming. Simple, tranquil, minimalist.
Saturn - The Bringer of Old Age
Using the circle as a clock face I used the face for all the bad aspects of getting old and the background is filled with quotes and words that see a positive side to aging.
Originally I was going to continue on my own time and complete a graphic for all of The Planets but sadly I don't have the time. Maybe one day.
