Six Word Story

This brief was to create a six word story from one of Shakespeare’s plays, in a typographic form, using hybrid fonts. The play of my choice was Macbeth, and my six word story read “First Glory and Greed…Then Death” highlighting the key points within the play.

In My design I wanted the key words “Greed, Death and Glory” to stand out, so I emphasised them by using bold and effective hybrid fonts.

I have mixed feelings about the layout I have used. I like how “Glory” falls down the page because Macbeth’s glory was his downfall due to his greed in becoming king. The thing I am unhappy about is that if one doesn’t know the sequence of words then it is hard to understand and follow the story. However, overall I am happy with the composition of my first experimentation this year with typography and hybrid fonts.
