Poster to accompany the typographic blocks

To choose a typeface to study and integrate into a series of blocks reflecting the uniqueness of the accompanying letter forms.

Inspired by the aesthetics of Art Nouveau, I chose a typeface from the same era and aspired to create 12 cohesive blocks with four visible outer layouts and two larger inner layouts. I integrated my astrological sign into the design to create a cosmic and informative work that uses the style and color palette of this movement.
