This is a visual typography piece that I designed as a part of my Public Relations and Advertising Design class at UNO. For this assignment, I was given the words “Olympic Champion” and told to make a visual design using only type and color.
For this design, my goal was visually connecting the words “Olympic Champion” to easily associated symbols with the Olympic Games. I chose the use the traditional Olympic rings superimposed over an outline of a torch. I chose to use an orange flame to create a balance between the colors of the rings as opposed to reusing the yellow and red used in the ring design. I chose to use the font “Herculanum” because it is thin enough to allow legibility and because the style is inspired by traditional Greek lettering and hints to the origin of the Olympics history. I had a lot of fun making this design and am proud of the overall look.
