Konaki Sumo Festival Poster

Konaki Sumo Festival Poster Design

For this student graphic design project, the assignment was to pick an unusual or uncommon festival and create an poster for it.

I chose the Konaki Sumo festival, an event where honored sumo wrestlers grant healthy lives to babies by forcing them to cry. I wanted to use the festival's phrase, 'Crying babies grow up fast' in some way and felt that it was appropriate as a background element to create a pattern and perhaps stand out more than a solid colored background.
