Lyric Poster

The objective of this project was to create a poster using a set of lyrics from a song and to create the typography by hand. I chose to do the song Bruises, by the band Chairlift. This is a love song about a couple doing handstands and getting bruises together. Because of this I decided to hand stitch the lyrics into the pocket of tattered, grass stained jeans that hold a love letter inside with the rest of the lyrics, and the band name. The strawberry was used because in the song frozen strawberries were used to heal the bruised knees. The overall feeling of the song was captured effectively through this poster interpretation.
