This collection of posters combines 3D typography with photography.
The first poster is an homage to Dadaism, an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. This poster reflects the Dadaists efforts in freeing text from conventional use and turning words and letters into abstract forms, resulting in a typographic landscape.
The second poster is for an annual Spring Visiting Lecture Series for designers and artists hosted by RISD. This is a poster designed for a fictitious series of lectures featuring the acclaimed sculptors Yayoi Kusama, Nick Cave, Jim Drain and Jen Stark. The underlying connection that I found between their work is repetition and pattern, which lends itself to a hypnotic effect.
I based my concept on this idea of hypnosis, and created 3D type with a glue gun and acetate paper to echo the same aspects of rhythm found in their work.
