When the man who takes care of my snow removal, who also owned a Jiu Jitsu studio, asked me to create a poster for his upcoming tournament, I was excited to do something totally different. The sport is physical and gritty so the poster had to reflect that. I created the distressed crowns in illustrator, used hierarchy in the typography and image placement, photoshop to modify the image, and inDesign to lay it out. The image is placed the way it is to give the impression of the two combatants coming in from the left side of the plain.
