Poster Designed for YouTheDesigner's poster contest. This is for the typography round.
Contestants were given a font and texture list, copy and dimensions. The rest is up to the imagination.
This poster is retro design (Goudy's era) meets contemporary design. The framed grid mimics a time line. The type takes on a current form of call outs, but sticks to the good old grid. The photo texture represents the dotted grid typographers used and still use to sketch and develop type. The texture and color palate emphasize an early 1940s feel, but allows a feeling of current design trends in texture and form.
