The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

My final A1 poster for the second project set at Camberwell.

The brief was to only use typography, strictly no imagery allowed, and one colour to depict 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised' by Gil Scott Heron in an A1 poster (min 25 words) and a double page spread containing the whole poem. I wanted the imagery to be purely greyscale but by a happy accident there were highlights of purple when it went for printing which i thought set it off quite nicely (thankfully).

Insipred by the 'Tower of Babel' concrete poetry, i made jenga sized blocks initially in black outlines. I thought these looked pretty poor though so i filled them in black and put text around the blocks rather than just on the face. They were a beast to position though. Three different sessions because i wasn't happy with the photos. I threw things. And them. That's why they're a bit dented. oh well.
