For this assignment we were asked to pick a vintage style of design and create a circus event poster. The rule was simple; only use type characters to illustrate your concept.
My concept was to recreate the look of early 1900`s vintage traveling circus posters. Since the use of drawings or shapes other than type characters was forbidden, I created my background entirely using a pattern of the word circus and the elephant using only type characters stacked one on top of the other. Take a closer look to see the details put into the design.
