Sundance Film Festival


Jan 24-Feb 3

Park City, Utah



You can consult the color groups from the "Color Combinations" pdf in the handouts folder on the Server.
You may use print res photographic images and/or color & shapes in your layout.
Font Face will be your choice. You can download and use unique fonts or use the default loaded fonts on the computers.

WARNING: Convert your text to shape before turning in your work.

Design Suggestions:
* Avoid obvious design choices such as: images directly related to "film" (i.e., film with sprockets, cameras),
or to "sun" or "dance" or images of Native Americans. Try designing so that your layout can stand on its own.
* Avoid overly designed Font Faces. Remember that your audience needs to read the information in your layout and not struggle or be confused.
