MLK:I've Been to the Mountaintop
This project is a typographic treatment of an excerpt from MLK's "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech. The lines that inspired these style frames are: "Now that's a strange statement to make because the world is all messed up. The nation is sick, trouble is in the land, confusion all around. That's a strange statement."
For these style frames I really wanted to play with typography as a visual element rather than just something to read and so I looked towards interesting posters for inspiration, especially Japanese typography posters, as well as photo manipulations that I could apply.
