Creating Port Orchard Art

From October 9, 2016

I’ve been inspired lately to design a poster that showed off aspects of our area that we can all connect to. As I think through the different areas that come to mind when I think about Port Orchard, I realize that there are a lot of visuals that could be used to identify our city. For this piece, I narrowed it down to a few of the elements that are meaningful to me.

I decided to incorporate the totem pole, our inlet and foot ferry, SK Wolves Football, A & W, City Hall, and the Farmer’s Market. There were a lot of other things I tried to get into this poster, but it started to impact the composition too much. I felt I could save these other elements and make different posters later.

We have a lot of amazing artists in our area who at some level are all inspired by our beautiful county. It’s fun to see what other people come up with and how they perceive Port Orchard. Well, I hope you enjoy this! Off to the next one!
