Ava Gardner Poster Contest

October 7, 2010

Each year Smithfield, NC hosts the Ava Gardner Independent Film Festival. She was born in the area, and it’s not often a small-town girl from this area ends up marrying Frank Sinatra. This year they had a contest to design the poster for the event and I figured what the hey? So I submitted two posters and lo and behold one was chosen.

This is the winning design:

I also submitted this poster:

I think designing concert and movie posters is one of the most fun things to do as a graphic designer. I love that they’ve become works of art, rather than just an advertisement.

But anyway, I was excited and honored that I won. The festival is this weekend, where they’ll be selling copies of the poster. You can learn more about the festival here.

    Hooray! Beautiful poster, Tiff. Though I’ve always known you were talented. And noone can make me laugh quite as hard as you can.
