Ones to watch

Ah, how nice it is to do a short, simple project, where the client says things like 'Ace' and 'Super' lots.
This is for The 405 and their 'Ones to Watch 2010' compilation CD. I'd been waiting for a chance to use this typeface for a while...

A favour for my boyfriend. I have no idea what this is all about, but it was my job to make it pretty. He's on a teacher training course, and they each have to produce an A1 poster about an area of science they're less confident in, up to A-level standard. Judging by most of the work I've seen from his class (and indeed the teaching community in general), Comic Sans, Clip art and lurid Gradients are sure to abound. The youth of today deserve better!

I used the typeface Vag Rounded, which has a similar 'friendly' 'rounded' feel to comic sans, but without all the... y'know, bad. Colours wise, I initally had ambitious ideas of using 3D style effects in places, but I ran out of time. So it's just red and blue. Ah well.

Oh yeah, and horrible JPEG quality! Why does everything I save from Indesign always do this? The colours were so much more vivid :(
