Flyer designs for poetry

Last year I started designing flyers for our poetry slam here in Canberra, BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!, as well as for another gig, Word Co-op at the ANU Food Co-op, and for the launch of my book That Place of Infested Roads at the Phoenix Pub.

I’ve been designing the poetry slam posters for a while now. We were lucky enough to have great poster designs from Anne Lander for several years for BAD!SLAM!ON!BISCUIT!, but now she is a successful designer living in the United Kingdom. We miss her for more than her designs, but we do miss those.

My favourite Anne Lander poster

Artist Paul Summerfield has also been nice enough to design some of our posters, now he’s busy making art and holding successful exhibitions.

While I’m not going to reach their level of design and art, I am hopeful that I am improving as I develop posters and flyers to let people know about our poetry events here in Canberra.

Below are my efforts at flyers from 2013 for BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!, Word Co-op and the book launch.

My first effort at a flyer

This is my November 2013 flyer effort

I designed this one in December but haven't used it yet

I am enjoying making them, I get to play with images and fonts I like, and I am this year contemplating using some photographs I've taken.
