Newham Bookshop posters at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Newham Bookshop was invited to be part of the Your Ad Here project, which commissioned artists to design posters to advertise local businesses. The posters are being displayed in the newly reopened Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for five years. The first posters are displayed near the Copper Box arena, and show a part of the whole design.

Our poster was designed by Bridget Meyne, a third-year illustration student at Falmouth University.
