    Default New Dodge Dart poster

    Hi, all!

    The Chrysler Corporation is reviving one of its classic nameplate cars - the Dodge Dart. I'm working on a poster project about it and was provided with an "assets pack", which, as you'll notice when you view the poster, is where the Dart logo and new Dart car photo comes from. I used Xara and PSE to put together the various elements in the poster. Let me know what you think of my finished work, if you please, and thanks!

    I'm not really the best person to comment on cars, but as a poster for one goes yours seems perfectly reasonable. If I had any criticism it would be that it's a little tall for the width and the DART text across the middle seems to cut it in half leaving the older model at the top a little lost and isolated.
    Good luck with the competition though.

    Everyone will have their opinions.
    But, I tend to agree with Derek a bit on this.

    Also, the way I tend to think (not always right!) I would have the word 'Dart' below the car but not change the colour or look.
    Then for me, the top part of the poster will look whole. Showing a passage of time from the older car to the newer one.
    But, also making a sentence because it will then read:
    DART
    ON THE ROAD AGAIN

    If that makes sense?!

    Aside from that, I would be very proud of the artwork.

    Better. Though my personal opinion is that is still too tall and the older model and date a little removed from the main focus. A bit like the stuff on the top shelf of a supermarket that no one notices.

    Hi Toonicorn, that poster is looking good, Although I have to agree with Derek if you can either bring the height down or make it a little wider would be good. If you are able to make it a little wider and leave the new model where it is, as if it is going to move into the extra space.

    Can't see this height thing, because the view of the car is low to give the car an aggressive stance it is always going to have this look. Nice drawing good use of colours.
    Design is thinking made visual.

    I have to agree with Albacore on this one, I can't see the height problem either. I think it's looking good.

    Never give up. You will never fail, you'll just find a whole lot of ways that don't work.
