Not Something To Hyde

Rachel in S2 has created an inventive title for her Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde book cover. The ‘Jekyll’ is written a neat script font with a classic ampersand (&) following. ‘Hyde’ is written in a font similar to the Evil Dead titles with blood spattered inside. The spatters are made with a fine red berol marker, each little spatter is a small circle that sprays out to ever decreasing circles. I like how Rachel has used the fonts to her advantage, telling the story of the classic book through the text. The minimal use of colour makes the title stand out. We have become so used to using Microsoft Word for type and font writing that drawing titles is becoming a dying art… It’s good to see that pupils like Rachel can keep the skill alive and show its worth.
