As part of The Design Kids Threesome Perth exhibition, 20 teams of 3 (a studio, graduate and student combo) were tasked with designing a three-word typographic poster to be placed around Northbridge. The exhibition is a typographic treasure hunt for the community – tag each artwork on instagram using the hash tag on the poster and when you find all 20 you have the chance to win some awesome prizes.
This is my collaboration with graduate Bruno Oliver Booth and student Tom Benson. We riso-screened our lettering onto a street sign in order to blend in with the urban environment. USE WITH FORCE essentially means that 'whatever you're doing, make it count'.
My word was use, so I twisted each character appropriately - making it look used.
