Typography Poster: The purpose of this project was to highlight a historical event using only type. I chose to explore when Caucasian, upper-class Canadian women first won suffrage. I created this poster using Illustrator. I began by creating a portrait of Nellie McClung out of type by tracing a photograph of her with several different script typefaces in Photoshop. Using words and quotes by McClung, I created some texture and used a monochromatic colour scheme inspired by heritage colours. This poster represents the hope that came with the beginning of suffrage for women as well as the strength that those pioneering women had to make it happen.
