Time Flows Differently


This poster is a typographic interpretation of the excerpt Time flows differently along the banks of the Ganges than it does along Madison Avenue from the essay Beyond the Margins of the Page by Mark Bartlett (Emigre 32). Opposing environments are represented by a rhythmic pattern of density/sparseness with layered typography, a contrast of rigid lines that cluster to create organic shapes, heavy slab serif type set against fibrous unbleached paper, and an emphasis of the essay words that speak to the elements which influence our perception of time.
