Mayor's Prayer Breakfast Promo

I was asked again to do the promotional materials for the Antioch Mayor's Prayer Breakfast, which takes place on the National Day of Prayer. And even though this design is not completely finalized, I wanted to share it!

I really wanted the look of this year's materials to be very bright and cheerful, emphasizing the morning sunrise (since this is an early 7am prayer time for the community). I chose an image that I thought reflected the look of the Antioch area and tried to just let it speak for itself.

This is an event open to the public through ticket sales, so I also designed the tickets to accompany the poster and flyer.

Project: Promo Materials for Mayor's Prayer Breakfast
Client: City of Antioch
Details: 11x17" Poster, 5.5x8.5" Flyer, and Tickets

Inspiration: AMS Design Blog

I wanted to share a design blog I recently discovered. The artist is Anneke Short, and she is brilliant at coming up with and finding inspiring art pieces, especially posters. The blog is a place where she posts a lot of her inspirations and I really enjoy scrolling through from time to time to see what other artists she is looking at. I wanted to share a link to some posters I saw today that I had not seen before, entitled "Confessions of a Designer". If you ever wanted a brief glimpse inside the head of a graphic designer, I think that these quotes are a good start. If you like these, I encourage you to take a look at some of her other work and the work she posts from other people who have inspired her.
