VBS Poster

Any tips on making the text more legible? I messed around with it but still disappointed with how hard it is to read. Maybe I should have just done a plainer poster lol. Image copyrights Marissa Pruett 2018.jungle art2jungle art2 no text


  1. Using a complementary colour against the background colour, so something like a red-orange against the green leaves?

    Other than that darken that shadow effect and a lighter drop shadow on the opposite side?

  2. What Steve said. I’d also suggest a sunny yellow with a thick outline stroke, either black or a dark green.

    For the details, you could try the same, or perhaps think about ‘boxing’ them in some fashion – maybe stylistically putting some greenery behind – so that they stand out a little more?

    Really cool drawing, though, so much fun!

  3. The drop shadow already helps, but you could try playing with other colours like white or even the coral from the clothes. Using a simpler, cleaner font may help. The other thing you could do is incorporate the text into the graphic on a rustic wooden sign or something rather than just putting it over top of the picture.
