We had to pick a word out of a hat for typography class and make put icons in the word to represent the word. I wanted to be ironic with the word “peace” and put images of war in it, so I drew a war plane with atomic bombs. These are the 4 final pieces out of 30 that I liked the best. The democratic one that looks like a flag ended up being my final.
I used a quote by Morrissey Mars, “If it’s not love, it will be the bomb that brings us together.”
I also used the typface Vernanda because it is a humanist san serif, meaning it mimics the human handwriting slightly. And I also like that it was named after the designers daughter, which makes it sentimental and a lot of people have memories and sentimental values for war times.
