Year of the Horse

Streetside Banner
Every year in January, the downtown Winnipeg BIZ invites RRC Second Year students to design a banner celebrating the turn of the Chinese New Year. These banners are displayed in Downtown Chinatown, Winnipeg. For 2014, the year of the horse, I wanted to pay tribute to Chinese tradition. Chinese characters are very visual. For example, the character for horse is a simplified horse. From this horse character, to the radial pattern and the wooden texture, this poster seeks to pay homage to Chinese villages of old by giving the impression of a mural that might be found on a wall.
