I chose an art deco theme for my poster because the genre was created out of opposition to art nouveau, a genre I thought would fit Florence and the Machine’s music perfectly. I felt like it would’ve been too easy to create an art nouveau poster around Florence because she often comes off as one of the flow-y clothed and free spirited women in some of the art nouveau artworks like I had seen when I was doing my initial research. I couldn’t find a particular artist that I wanted to emulate but I found a poster that I really liked that I knew was considered to be art deco. I have included a copy of that design below. The link to my original research is found below as well. The newest technique that I had used to create my poster that I didn’t know before was the pen tool which I used to create Florence, from her face and hair down to her necklace and dress.
