Expressive Type: Sweeney Todd Poster

Online, I found this piece to have interesting expressive type. This poster is by Mao Lee-Tzu and you can find it here. The type in this poster reallyexpressive
expresses the motion and energy of the splatter and fits in well with the splatter image itself. The artist reinforced the motion with type by tilting the words so they look like they are part of the splatter. They also used a combination of different type sizes to go along with the random splatter marks as well. I do wish that the words were shifted a little bit better so they would fit in more and that the Sweeney at the top left was a little bit easier to read though. Overall, the type in this poster is an extension of the energy from the splatter.
