Qualitative California Zephyr Poster Revision/Final

This poster taught me a lot about image and type and the relationship between the two. I went through many iterations with different incorporations of typography, all feeling very disjointed. The image was so surreal, I didn't want to take away from the landscape with flat typography. I adjusted the opacity and size to create depth and merge the type with the landscape to make this look like a trip someone would want to go on. Most of the journey is at night which is the reason for the starry sky and the moon-like luminescence over the imagery. It is quantitative in the fact that it goes from each realistic landscape in the actual order that they would be experienced during the trip. I really enjoyed this project. I reprinted this poster for the sophomore reviews.
