Ideas for my poster

Because In my digipack I have different images of the members of the band, I thought I could have a similar style on my poster. This poster below has the style I was thinking of, what is good about it is that it shows the different band members as individuals, not so much as a group.

Another idea along the same lines is to have a few different posters, with on each one a different band member. So therefore you are again giving the band members more individuality.

Another idea is to have a group shot of the band in a setting used in the music video. If i was to do this i would like to have a shot of the band in a relaxed setting, directly relating to the fun in the music video.
This poster below is very similar to the style i would want, very relaxed and fun.

Examples of Hip-Hop posters

Looking at all the posters of hip-hop artists, they all evolve around the main singer or artist. They are also all in very intimidating poses, and are all looking directly into the camera. In some posters, like one of the ones below, they are holding a weapon, making them even more intimidating. Also most of the posters are in black and white. The black and white gives an image of coolness and also makes them look sinister.

final digipack idea

For my digipack i am going to combine different shots of the band with bubble writing and strong bold colours. On my front cover i am going to have a few of the band members sat on a bonnet of a car, on the left side of the cover. Then on the right side i am going to have the other members sat on a curb or a bench. Then above them, in jokey-style bubble writing i will have the band name. The background of this will be a bold, bright colour, furthermore representing the fun idea of the video. For the rest of the sides i am going to have a different shot of the band members in different poses. The poses will be mick takes of the poses that rappers have in magazines. This trainspotting poster is the sort of idea i want, with different images of the members.

On the back i will have the lead singer, with the information and track listing going over the top of him,  with him therefore in the background. The background of all the sides will be, like the front cover, one bold, bright colour. All the sides will be a different colour, making it have that bright and colourful look i was looking for. The one single colour look is like the dizzee rascal cover i was looking at before, and it also has the sort of bubble writing i would like my my title to be in.

I also thought that, because my writing is going to be in bubble writing, i could have a sort of speech bubble surrounding the title. I would also have the speech bubble coming from the lead singer, showing that he thought up and wrote the song.
