Pakistani Hindus

Here’s a poster/leaflet I worked on whilst part of The South Asian Students Association (SASA) at the University of Edinburgh. It’s the result of a collaboration of three committee members.

The picture has an aura of elegance and simplicity and the efforts in making this poster was to complement that.

The prominent color of the temple is a beige white; as the temple has ‘streaks’ of blue, the sky becomes a great addition in balancing the photo, and an ideal place for text. We avoided placing any text on the temple as to not mar it’s appearance. The color was chosen to be white, the white text on blue acts as a pleasing contrast to the blue details on the temples beige background.

The two symbols at the top are the moon and crescent of the flag of Pakistan, and Om a common sign for Hinduism. Together these symbols we hope represents a unified duality of Pakistani Hindus.

I was responsible for the computer related art work (done in Gimp) as well as the posters design, which was done in tandem with the help of Punit Bhudia. The president of the society at the time, Anakral Frankenburger Bulhan took the photo (a temple in Pakistan).

I think it turned out well.
