This is the first Poster I made for a IRL contest our school is holding. It's about Latvian War of Independence (1918-1920), and this is about a historical event, when our President came back home on a ship called "Saratov".
This is the design I came up with for FadingArt. When I initially started thinking about the logo, many gradient and transparency related ideas came to mind, but I was determined to represent "Fading Art" without literally fading anything. Thus came the concept of the leaves, falling off their tree and fading away. Another meaning to it is the wind that carries the leaves is fading away.
Now for the very nature inspired layout... I believe all art has it's roots in Nature somehow, so that's why this art related website has been given a nature theme. Sky above (header) and ground below (footer), content in between.
