Odium is a play poster inspired by the story of Michael Deng, a boy who was murdered by his own fraternity brothers. My design focuses on the metaphorical aspects of the story. Utilizing pieces of broken mirror and using textured substrate to create the hand-done headline describes a distressing mood that symbolizes the terror that Michael Deng must have felt moments before he took his last breath. The contrasting colors add to the feeling of tension and pain.
Odium went through many stages to become what it is today.
