BURN BRIGHT

Expressive Typographic Poem

BUT TIGER, YOU BURN BRIGHT IN
THE THICKET OF MY EYES

The goal of this project was to typographically express poetry or music lyrics; I chose a poem I liked. I hand wrote parts of it separately and then pieced everything together to create the final composition. Hand writing in my opinion gave me the freedom to be as expressive as I wanted - ranging from soft cursive to text with sharp edges to emphasize specific imagery referenced in the poem. I tried to visually express what the words meant by subtly adding colour and varying size and shape. Both vertical and horizontal layouts were created.
