Have a Motown & Soul Christmas, ya filthy animals!

So it's almost Christmas—if you didn't already know. Which fills me with excitement and dread, but mostly excitement so I won't go too far into it.

This time of the year means one thing for any designer, everyone asks for their posters to look 'Christmassy' which will almost always entail a colour scheme of Red & Green and lots of white specks dotted around the image.

But this poster, although it embodies all those terrifying traits was in fact a lovely poster to do. This was because the client actually knew a style they wanted and it wasn't strictly just the idea of Christmas.

This was the inspiration I was given from the DJ for Motown & Soul, and to be honest, as simple as it is—I really like it. I really had to make this fit the style I had created from the previous posters and without breaking any copyright laws; it was difficult but I feel it went rather well!

If looks closely you can spot Michael Jackson, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and those lovely ladies of who's name I cannot remember.

So there isn't all that much more I can say, but I hope you like the poster. Because it's going to be in and around Carlisle, in your face, very very soon. You have been warned.
