Our class created a poster series for our final show, 17 distinct stories of immigrants portrayed with large scale text.
-At least three distinct typographic voices must be represented in the final
-All full black text on white paper (optional single color can be applied by hand)
-36x72 hanging poster
-No photographic imagery (type can be used as image)
-Copy: Main text (personal story of an immigrant), fact & quote (support, contrast, enforce, or clarify the main text)
I chose Lazar and Dina's story because of how different their voices are, I wanted to embrace the two characters and illustrate the contention and frustration in their story. I knew that to successfully communicate on such a large scale I would need to accentuate their voice through typographic scale and image. I took inspiration from designers who were living similar lives to Lazar and Dina giving Dina the voice of a Russian activist and Lazar an American ad man.
