Exercises in Style
I designed a series of posters for the story “Dream” from the book “Exercises in Style”. I used different strategies to design typography based on the content of the narrative.
I visualized the “corridor” and “the Gare Saint-Lazare” into an overlapped form, for which I picked plastic wrap and tore paper to create the textures and shapes. I used water and burn marks to represent “the multifarious and indistinct apparitions around me.” I combined different strategies into new compositions and invented new works.
I created three hybrid posters as a set, reflecting three paragraphs in the story.
