Ernest Shackleton Autumn School Poster

This is the almost final design for this year's Ernest Shackleton Autumn School poster. As far as I am aware this will be the first illustrated poster that they have commissioned. I have taken inspiration from the design of travel posters from the 1920's & 30's with their limited colour palates & bold graphic representation. For me they evoke a period when any travel was a valiant undertaking & an extension of empire building.
