EXPRESSIVE POETRY POSTER
20" x 40"
PROJECT : POSTER CELEBRATING NATIONAL POETRY MONTH (23" x 40")
Design an expressive typographic poster that celebrates National Poetry Month through the use of one poem that is chosen from a given list of poems.
PARAMETERS : Poster will be a diptych and must display one chosen quote about poetry.
CONCEPT : DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESS + CRITICAL THINKING
National Poetry Month is celebrated every April. The project began as a team effort to design a diptych.
Each designer would create their own poster, but work with their partner in order to complete an effective diptych. I took it upon myself to design a poster that would hold strong independently and dependently when paired.
I chose a poem entitled, MOTHER IS AS LONELY. This project was especially challenging because I was visually communicating another artist's self-expression. I wanted to honor the poem, the poet, the type and design.
