"It was about ideas, art, design, and how to work and what do with an idea" "Often times people associate achievement and success with a number of things, like the right timing, luck, circumstances, or natural talent. But the true origins of success are more elusive." A. Guzman, founder of AIFF .
The Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) selected the artwork of Tyler Wood, a senior in the Design & Digital Media Department at Mount Ida College as this year’s winner of the AIFF Poster Contest Competition. Tyler’s poster submission was unveiled at a reception on April 21 as he was presented a check for $500, thanks to the generosity of award sponsor Watertown Savings Bank.
"The winning poster this year displayed attention to detail, and thoughtfully chosen palette that conveys a modern, yet earthy tone. The text employs appropriate visual hierarchy and legibility to communicate important event details. This satisfies the most important goal of the project, i.e. the viewer doesn't have to hunt around to figure out (a) what this poster is about and (b) how to participate. In addition, the main graphic invites the viewer to explore, with its rhythmic shapes and lines. The composition of the entire layout is balanced and implies movement." Jennifer Cheng DesAutels, AIFF Poster Contest Judge, Illustrator, Logo Designer and Plein Air Artist
