You’ve Gone Mad: My all time favorite movie is Alice in Wonderland, the Tim Burton Version. Also, my favorite character in this movie is the Chesire Cat. Therefore, naturally, I made the minimalist poster about Chez. The moon representation is from a scene in the movie where the moon turns into the smile of the Cheshire Cat. I thought it would make a cool idea to represent this in the poster.

Smile for the Moon: Again, I used the BeFunky site to do all my design editing. The site can really do everything. To start, I found a basic photo of a crescent moon via google.  I rotated this image to look like a smile, then I placed it on a black background to give it a simple minimalist effect. After that, all I had to do was add the text at the bottom, and put all of the layers together. I don’t think I did a bad job with the design, especially with my limited knowledge of graphic design.
