The development of a compelling visual design system seeks to unify a system's differing components yet instill excitement through its innovative representation of meaning. This project focuses on the manipulation and arrangement (composition) of typography and image as it conveys messages through a poster series.
This proposed poster series for a museum exhibit highlights three influential writers using photographed type in physical space to express their experiences as writers as well as their unique styles. The Toni Morrison piece uses a grounded ripped paper composition to communicate her stark and gritty realism. Gabriel Garcia-Marquez is known for his fantastic realism, which is expressed through floating typography with extreme perspective. These both contrasts well with the poster for Rabindranath Tagore which uses a combination of these techniques, blurring the line between physical and transcendental.
This project was acknowledged by peers and the course professor to integrate the cross-national alignments and highlight the experiences of the reputed Nobel Laureates.
