Here’s a few examples of my take on a Bauhaus inspired poster but I have tried out various different colour palettes this time, compared to my original design where I used traditional Bauhaus style colours.
Here I’ve used a colour palette using similar shades. I like this one because the colours all compliment each other really well.
This posters colour palette was chosen using compound colours. Despite the colours all being quite different they still seem to compliment each other and don’t clash. I also feel that the use of different colours on this one help the shapes and text stand out more.
Here I used a monochromatic colour palette. I feel that it is quite similar to the first one where I used similar shades. This helps in giving the poster a uniform look.
Overall I like how the use of a colour palette helps to create an image in which the colours compliment each other compared to if you were to choose random colours. It helps the poster really come together.
I had a walk around the university campus and took some photos and did a sketch of some things which I thought were inspired by the Bauhaus movement.
The architecture of these buildings were definitely inspired by the Bauhaus movement. Numbers 1 and 5 had quite simple shapes to them – made up mostly of geometric blocks and windows. Image 1 also had some orange coloured blocks which represent the Bauhaus movement really well.
Images 2 and 3 show that the Bauhaus inspiration at University isn’t just for the architecture – it is also found in furniture and objects too. They both have quite a basic but practical design.
Overall the Bauhaus movement favoured a minimalist, geometric look which is reflected well in lots of the modern architecture we see today, including lots of the architecture and objects that I found whilst walking around the University campus.
