In Typography, we were asked to create a poster for any book, movie, or play using only elements of type. I decided to use elements of the Cheshire cat to represent the move Alice in Wonderland. To create the bars at the bottom & the teeth, I used the letter ‘l’ in a sans serif font. I then used a serif font bracket for the smile.
I created these two additional posters. I used serif and sans serif “o”‘s to represent the different ‘worlds’ in Inception (I don’t think this worked out as well), and a simple bracket & dash to represent Captain Hook in Peter Pan. I also created an additional version of the Alice in Wonderland with whiskers.
