Daily typographic poster challenge
After buying a book by David Carson, I got interested in expressive typography. For my first attempt at this medium, I designed a poster every day in January 2020 to better understand expressive type. With a busy travel month, I designed some posters at airport gates and sketched on random scraps of paper. Each poster uses lyrics from my favorite hip hop songs.
During the month-long project, I learned about geometric compositions and types of grids used in typography. After completing the project, I wrote a blog post about my experience.
This poster of a Kid Cudi song from 2009 borrows colors from a Post Malone album cover from 2018.
As an avid reader, book cover designs live in my subconscious. After completing the month of poster designs, I realized this poster mimics the book cover for Power vs. Force by David Hawkins.
This poster uses my favorite painting by the Chinese artist Xue Jiye, reminiscent of the album cover for this song. He has permitted me to use his artwork for personal and commercial use.
