I created this poster for a typography class that I took in college. The assignment was to create a poster documenting type around Austin. As a young designer with a burgeoning interest in typography, I was inspired by the way I was seeing type around me in new and informed ways. This new found typographic lens allowed me to see my hometown in an entirely different way. My goal was to show what Austin looked like through my eyes— a magical, typographic wonderland, and to tell a story not necessarily about Austin, but the beauty of a new perspective.
My process involved both analogue and digital processes. I hand cut 26 lens covers out of card stock in order to create the bokeh effect, and enhanced the images using Adobe Photoshop.
The locations I chose were Spider House Coffee, South Congress Avenue, The Paramount Theater, and West Campus.
