Expressive Type


typemotion2I think that this poster for a dance event uses type to complement the motion of a photo well. I was drawn to this poster when I first saw it as an example for the current class project. The way the type curves below the dancers expresses the motion that occurred before the photo was taken, the motion of jumping through the air, and the small section of type above the dancers represents the path that the dancers continue to take in the aftermath of the photograph. The type and the photo both work together to create a dynamic composition.
