Le Massif de Charlevoix – Travel Poster

Le Massif de Charlevoix is a ski hill in north-eastern Quebec just over an hour from Quebec City. I think I mentioned in my last post that the views are spectacular as your overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Just a bit of history, in 2002, Daniel Gauthier, one of the co-founders of Le Cirque du Soleil, purchased Le Massif. He sold his interest in Cirque du Soleil and used part of the proceeds to purchase this ski hill.

A few months ago I posted an image of Rome that I re-invented as a vintage travel poster. You can see that one here. Well I had so much fun doing that one that I had to create one for Le Massif.  I see a trend starting here.

  14. I like the way you’ve processed this and the font works really well. I can see a new career as a Graphic Designer/Typographer for you.

  20. You did a good job of “repurposing” the photo: let the flocking of tourists begin.
