Summer Sun Celebration Poster by Skeptic-Mousey Summer Sun Celebration Poster by Skeptic-Mousey
Was trying to imitate the 'Swiss' style of posters with this one. Basically the style consists of sans-serif typefaces, little to no capitals, and an overall very simple, often geometric / grid based design layout.

Check out this pic here [link] It's a design that follows the Swiss style and is about Jan Tschichold, the forerunner of 'the new typography.'

Another thing you might not know; the typeface used here is Helvetica, (like all the other posters :P) which was designed by Max Miedinger in 1957, who is also Swiss.
(While Tschichold wasn't Swiss himself, he moved there in the first months of Nazi Germany, and lived there for the rest of his life.)

Hope you learned something. :)
Cheers!
