The brothers of La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc., Alpha Gamma Chapter will be hosting their 14th annual Poetry Slam. This is the flyer design that I came up with, and yes, I will be hosting this event as well

I enjoyed creating this flyer because the theme is rather unique. I had the words “passion, love, and sacrifice” to play around with. As I was doing my research on the word sacrifice, I came across the oblations statue that can be found in the Philippines. The statue is of a man with his arms open wide, symbolizing the sacrifice that he gives for his country. I found an similar image and used this as the base of the design. I have the main graphics coming out of his chest/heart, symbolizing love. Although passion may be a little harder to recognize in this design, I hope that you can see the passion that I put into this design with all of the details.

This design was inspired by Starfantazy’s Creatio ex nihilo. The open arms of this piece of art work is amazing with all of the details of the  natural life forms, my breath was taken away. I definitely wanted to do something with a similar style. I was also influenced by this image that I found. Unfortunately I do not know the artist. But I love the red letters being the center of attention and how they seemed somewhat jumbled. I thank both of these artists for their beautiful artwork and inspiring mine.
