illustrative propaganda design board
A hipster is someone who is true to oneself. This popular trend of embracing individuality, is hypocritical since an invasion of the hipster culture is taking over. Everyone wants to be a hipster. Our frames depict a futuristic government's propaganda posters, sometime in the next 10-20 years, where "hipster" is the adult trend. Mimicking the posters from the 1950's, like Rosie the Riveter, these posters use pin ups as a way to sell this hipster lifestyle. Including buying organic food, buying vintage clothing, listening to vinyl, getting tattoos, and smoking Cloves.
We used watercolor to create the initial portraits of our hipster pin ups, then adding some details with pen and ink. Overlaying these with outlines made in Illustrator, and finally put in Photoshop to add textures, a frame design, and text.
