Creative design #5

Railway poster 2022

Just two days free trial to go and I decided to design and create a poster featuring our local, and iconic, Welsh Highland Railway. The new station building was opened a few years ago, and shares its setting with the imposing Caernarfon Castle. I’ve included my favourite engine ‘Number 87’ to complete the scene showcasing all that I love about my town.

I’ve tried to be faithful to the old minimalist railway poster style, whilst manipulating the position and perspective of the three main components to create a harmony of colour, line, and tone. As with all creative endeavours, it is not 100% there but as the wonderful Tom Keating used to say as he put down his brushes and turned to camera, “That’s all I can do for now. Thank you.”
