The Typolyrics challenge was to design a dynamic square composition that brings together a typeface and a song, revealing the essence of each in one cohesive space. The dimension of the piece needs to be 16 inches square. The piece needs to only have black and white and the many greys formed through typographic color.
I took The Carpenters' "Yesterday Once More" as my chosen content. Focusing on the phrase "melt the years away," I want to convey the feeling of time passing and the subtle emotion by "melting" the word "Melt" in the background and distributing the tiny crisp words in the foreground. My main focus was to bring emotion and voice to typography.
I was glad that the assignment got pretty good feedback from its audience. They think the approach is working very well and the emotion is conveyed through the design.
