The Midsummer Station Poster by SylvaKnight The Midsummer Station Poster by SylvaKnight
My poster for the design contest.

In the project brief Owl City describes "a safe place in my head that I can retreat to when things get crazy." I started from there and the most immediate image that came to mind was a secluded place in the woods, far away from everything hectic and time-sensitive. Two other places where I feel most at peace are on the water or in the sky, so I combined these as a lake's reflection.

I chose exclusively cool colors (save for the sun, which is a cooled-down yellow) because they evoke a sense of calm.

The design is meant to still be effective if turned over. There is a second reversed version in which the text is properly reversed along with the imagery.

The idea [In the project brief Owl City describes "a safe place in my head that I can retreat to when things get crazy."] was great!
Also a good NEW reason why we love Owl City music!

Where's the link so I can vote? This is gorgeous! I love how the piano is there in the middle of a forest, so calm and serine. And the boat also shows the love Adam feels for sailing and whatnot. You captured Adam's essence well, and the birds are a nice touch, although they do remind me A LOT of the "All Things Bright and Beautiful" cover.:heart:

Here's the [link] ! I'm glad you like it. I didn't even think about the ATBAB cover until now, but you're right!

Right now, if I could go anywhere, I'd want a clearing in the forest in the summertime with a piano to play. :)
