I've been asked to create a poster for an actual event happening in 2 months. It is for an olympic lifting meet at my local crossfit gym. The main image will be similar to this but with one of our own athletes competing.
I want to make something along the lines of an actual olympic event similar to designs modeled after London, Beijing, Sochi as so on. I want to be clean and minimalistic. I've found few examples other than these images.
I am leaning toward this style to design this poster.
Here is a quick mock up of the style as well as a font that fits what I am trying to do.
