We are planning a Martial Arts Festival were local MA clubs can come an display their style for an audience. We are going to fabricate a large number of publicity posters for the event, and we wish to order an illustration to make the centre piece - or eye-catcher - of the poster - like a movie poster.
We would like some of the Asian "Mystique" in poster if it is possible.
The illustration should inspire members in the locals clubs as well as MA interested people on the streets, to read the poster and hopefully decide to go to the event.
The biggest hurdle is the multi culture angle. We have styles from Japan, China, Korea, Thailand, Brazil and maybe more, and we would like if the illustration/poster would not alienate any - or as few as possible - of the mentioned cultures. For instance if we make a Japanese/Korean inspired poster the others may not feel represented in the poster. But If we but all the cultures in there, it might get cluttered.
A generic Asian illustration might come closed enough to please most of the styles, but this is not a requirement, just and idea.
The festival is a display festival of fighting techniques, some performed by adolescences - not a combat competition - so we are not looking for displays of brutal fighting.
We are just interested in the illustration for the poster - we are adding title, dates and info later. Beside the text will be in Danish, so in order to get it right we would like to create it ourselves.
If the illustration has areas of less rich details we will print the illustration to the edge of the paper, and then add title and text to these areas.
If we really like the poster we will possible use it again next year or for other purposes within the organization.
