Homecoming poster

I recently had the opportunity to design a poster for classical music, welcoming home astronauts back from the Russian space station. I was very honored to have been asked to design this and it was very fun project. 

The two sketches above are the initial ideas that I sent to the client based on the brief, which needed to take inspiration from Yu A Gagarin Research Centre's website while also showing some of the performers on the night. 

It was also interesting to be working in Russian (a language I know nothing about) which meant I had to spend time looking for fonts that supported Cyrillic characters. I eventually chose bold Intro to contrast with the delicate and classical Lora.
