Bobby Wickham – Futurism

This poster is intended as a representation of Italian futurism. Through its distortion of a traditional grid, to its expressive representation of typography. The six words I used were; Technology, light, automation, speed, power, and, in the futurist style, a made up onomatopoeia “skra-kang-kang’ to truly encompass the style. This image was heavily influenced by Filippo Marinetti, as well as more modern speculations from Sean Hall’s Futurism booklet. Through my simple use of colour, type, and line I hoped to get across the ideology behind this movement as well as I can.
