This is building off of the Poetry Art assignment and is an exercise how design choices can change a message. Put your selected poem together with a background that emphasizes the message. Then make 3 different versions by varying the typeface, type layout, and type color to see how it impacts the message over all.https://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/poetry-art-design/
The first thing I did was search for a poem I wanted to use, and found a haiku I liked on called “Over the Wintry” by Natsume Sōseki on readpoetry.com.
Then, I made a Canva account and learned how to use it. I created a poster for the poem and picked a background image that I thought emphasized the message.
In my first version of the poem, I used a white type color, but it sort of blended into the background a little too much.
So, for the second version I changed the font, size, and color, which stood out more, but I was not liking the yellow. I thought the first version gave off a more calming vibe and fit the winter theme more.
