Design Rationale



At a slam, the poet must perform a poem of their own creation, in any style, within the time limit without the aid of props, costumes, nudity, animal acts, or musical accompaniment. Therefore, I chose a typographic approach when designing the poster, because poets are meant to express themselves only via the use of words. The background graphic also signifies the act of being able to speak freely.
