‘And Still I Rise’
Typographic Poster
Poem by Maya Angelou

This poster is an exploration in typographic voice. I was prompted with a body of text and was asked to choose and convey a voice for that piece of writing. After many rounds of exploration, I chose a Paula Sher inspired treatment. I initially presented the text alone. I later made adjustments and added the shape of the body, which helped to visualize the power, strength, and sheer sassiness of the poem.
