GCR Winter Steam Gala Poster - Full Steam Ahead !

I was asked to design a poster for Great Central Railway`s Winter Steam Gala the design needed to fit in with the period settings of the various stations and their collection of classic railway posters but also stand out when displayed away from this environment.
My design (like the classic posters) focuses on text with a photographic image reduced to basic cut out colours relegated to a supporting role
The blues and whites of the poster directly reference the winter time period of the event and the sharp angles the forward dynamism of the train moving directly toward the viewer.
