Lyric Posters

This series of nine lyric posters were developed as an exercise for an Advanced Typography class, where the prompt was to use post-modern/grunge design from the 1990’s as inspiration.

After researching Emigre’s history and influence within the design world, I became very interested in not only their impact but how their magazine designs completely changed with every issue. Their work was a true testament to experimental designs and I decided to run with this concept and create this set of posters. The posters themselves are each representative of an era in Emigre history, which I analyzed and condensed into individual posters which actually ended up becoming a type of abstracted visual timeline for Emigre.
