Design Thoughts: The purpose of this design is to show my ability to create and use patterns. I created the chalkboard pattern and added it to the background. I used the design principles of alignment, contrast, and repetition as I created the content of the poster.
Alignment: I chose to align the text and the box the text is in along the top 2/3 of the design, with the blooming tree on the bottom 1/3 of the design. I also used proximity while aligning the text.
Contrast: I chose two contrasting fonts for the growing quote. The black lines and the chalkboard lines are also contrast, as well as the bright blooming tree.
Repetition: I repeated a red from one of the flowers for the font color. I also repeated one of the fonts to make the words 'Grow' and 'Planted' stand out.
Photoshop Settings Used
The pattern was created by using the offset filter and the patch tool to create a seamless pattern
