Urban Typography

Part 2 to my Urban Typography project in the first year of my Graphic Design degree.

The brief was to create a poster using only typography using movement of the urban city. It took me a long time settle on a colour scheme that really worked. I also decided against the idea of using text on horizontal and vertical axis, instead using rotations of 45 degrees for the layout.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental 
hospital, because she killed her mom and dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of you life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break the chain you will see a little dead girl in your room.
