Saving Lives at Sea – One better typographic poster?

Our next brief was to take our 3 typographic posters, choose one of them and try and make it better. We were looking at constancy in the text (Such as en dashes or hyphens, ampersands, ensuring all dates and times were constant and spellings were correct) as well as better establishing a hierarchy and, possibly most importantly: kerning, tracking and leading.

I chose to improve my middle poster which looked like this incase you’d forgotten:

and tweaked it to look like this:

If anyone has any feedback on how to improve it further please let me know! I’m still not entirely convinced about the colours but I do think it’s a step up from the first poster.

In fact just putting it on here and looking at it afresh has made me realise that the bottom 3 columns don’t look even if they do fit the grid so that will need some tweaking!
