Expressive Typography

For this typography project, we chose three songs and had to express them solely based on their lyrics while conveying the overall mood of each song. The songs I chose to express were The Scientist by Coldplay, Upside Down by Jack Johnson, and Are You Down by Marian Hill. For the first poster the task was to create the mood with just type and no color. The second poster’s goal was to utilize shapes, but still with no color. While the third poster was when color could be incorporated to help illustrate the feel of the song.
