This is another poster that I found. It's for a graphic design student show. I'm not a huge fan of this particular poster design as the information is quite boring to look at and no dates stand out to me. I do, however, think the background image is successful, therefore I will need a strong background image for my own poster design. The type is all left aligned at the bottom, which is something I may consider with my own poster design, as the type on my website is left-aligned.
This is another poster design I found. This poster is very vector based. It's simple, yet to the point - there is a limited amount of text and colour used. This would make the poster very cheap to reproduce, although I am guessing that this poster would be a screen print. Looking at all three of these posters, I think it's key that there is a limited amount of text on the poster, and that the image is really striking to draw attention from the audience.
