Time is Money

A personal poster project that explores the visualization of a commonly used idiom.

Type — Typography, Illustration

Roles — Conceptualization, Illustration

Tools — Adobe Illustrator

Duration — January 2019 (one week)

  Ideation & Inspiration   —  I find idioms so fascinating as they play with ideas from a non-literal take. With this poster, I tried to visualize this phrase in a literal sense by incorporating the idea of a physical piggy bank. I used the American hundred dollar bill as its consistent colours of green are iconic.

  Original Concept   —   Initially, I wanted to have bills drop off a conveyor belt, though it didn’t make much sense visually and I wasn’t able to find a good solution to create this piece.
