The shoelace was great. So. this year the expectations are higher. Can I pull it off?
On 11-Apr-2010, IISc Alumni Cell is organising ‘Science & Technology Run’ or better known as ‘SnT Run.’ I got a chance to do the branding work. I have handled the branding of SnT Run of 2008. People liked the banners and posters very much: especially the ‘shoelace’ one. Read the full story here.
So here I am, trying to outrun myself.
I am doing three separate designs for SnT Run 2010. They are:
- Logo Design
- Poster Design for publicity
- Banner design for the event
In this post, I am explaining only about the item 2: ‘Poster Design for publicity.’
I exactly know what I am NOT going to do this year. I am not going to use the imagery of a robot running. I am not going to use shoelaces. Although the run happens in the green campus of IISc, I am thinking about a race track. I am thinking about the markings on the turf. Then I have a view of somebody running towards the camera. He is running to me as if there is not much time left for the event. Wait, can ‘he’ be the date on which the SnT Run is happening?
The setting of the stage

Arranging the numerals and alphabets and applying blur
Adding shadows and applying blur
Adding the SnT Run logo on to the turf
The idea was that the date of SnT Run is approaching, so don’t be an onlooker, be a part and so ‘Better run…’
This is the finished poster. Click to enlarge.
‘Run for science, run for environment’ is selected as this year’s SnT Run theme. Nowadays whenever people think of environment or eco-friendliness, the ‘green’ colour fills their imagination. So I am told to come up with a green version of the poster.

Adding a green layer on top of the feathered track only
I will be writing about the other two designs (logo and banner) soon.
