Typographic Broadside

These are my two posters advertising the Egyptian typeface Rockwell. I had wanted to work with a mustardy yellow color but that transformed into a construction orange which I find very striking in this piece. I experimented with outlines, especially the off centered ones that you sometimes see in traditional prints. The skyline is the city of New Haven, CT, the home town of the creator of the text Franklin Pierpont. I feel that overall this project was very successful.
