This poster was created for the class, Poster Studio, and was completed during Final Studio. It is a poster advertising for the summer events that take place at the Newport, Rhode Island cafe, Empire Tea and Coffee. Loose leaf tea was the inspiration behind the type layout. I focused on loose tea leaves because it represents the local, independent vibe versus the corporate feel of packaged tea bags. The chosen typeface, Helvetica, is simple to offset the complexity of the random type structure and image.
