London Underground Posters

For another project, I intend on designing posters for the five Hackney districts (Hoxton, Shoreditch, De Beauvoir Town, Haggerston, Dalston) I have been concentrating on, which also happen to all be located on the new London Overground line (Shoreditch High Street, Hoxton, Haggerston, Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland). This means that as well as advertising the district, I can also promote the use of the London Overground as well!

Back in the early 20th century, many posters promoting travel, especially to London’s outer suburbs, were common on the London Underground. By using illustration rather than photography, they can achieve a certain atmosphere desired to attract the audience more to the place. So this is what I shall do with my own posters.
