Objective

Our aim was to play with lights, colors, materials, and type to create mysterious and incredible imagery that revealed the soul a song, exploring variety of ways to play with type. We were asked to design a poster based on the song that we had chosen. The goal was to express the music through typography, imagery, and layout. This course also required us to design a poster for the word “bedlam” and illustrate what we felt.

Approach

I chose to work with “Life is beautiful“, a hard rock song by Sixx Am band from 2007. The lyrics of this song are about feeling the life by breaking out of our daily routines and taking risks. I used triangle shapes and the red color to represent the feeling of risk and movement. Also, I chose a serif typeface to make the poster dynamic. In addition, I changed the poster topic to “Gamble Your Life” instead of “Life Is Beautiful” because I wanted to show my interpretation of the song. I decided to make the Bedlam poster abstract by using coal to draw vertical and horizontal lines which interrupt each other, conveying the idea that bedlam is happening in our lives.
