I love this poster rendition of Rocky. The visual is so simple, yet it uses gestalt to convey two ideas from the movie. The colors are bold, and there is a texture that speaks to the jagged lines of the visual. I love the simplicity and creativity that this poster possesses.
I think that this is an unsuccessful example of an event poster. First of all, the visual does not represent math or art; in fact, I find it confusing and lacking a purpose. I understand how the background is mimicking the texture inside the circle, but it would help if the fish in the circle actually stood for something. Also, I feel that there is not enough balance in the poster; there should be a little more simplicity to make this poster stand out in a successful way.
