I found two examples of posters that use type that expresses motion and energy. The first poster, the red one, lays the text down at different angles that depicts a set of stairs. This would be a great way to create the project in class if you had an image of a person climbing a set of stairs with the quote laid out in this style. That would be very interesting and the text would accompany the photograph well.
The second example that I found was a more obvious way of making text show motion and energy. This image shows a boxing glove punching through the page and sending the text off in the direction of the punch. This is a cool idea, but I think that it could be done in a more interesting way.
