Truth and Lies Symbolic Type
The purpose of this project was to create symbolic type that would express a less obvious meaning about the selected words. I explored a few different words but in the end chose the words 'Truth' and 'Lies' to express. The type was displayed on a 36in x 24in Poster.

For the poster, a laser cutter was used to cut out both the words 'Truth' and 'Lies.' The shadow from the word 'Lies' was removed in Photoshop and cast behind the laser cut words 'truth,' to express the meaning that often lies hide behind the truth. The shadows surrounding the piece add a somber and depressing feel as the beauty, cleanness and purity is overshadowed by the darkness of the lies.
