Time is Money

Typography and graphics poster that explores an idiom.

This personal poster project is an exploration of a common idiom people use every day. 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 the piggy bank. I used the American hundred dollar bill as its consistent colours of green are iconic.  

Initially, I wanted bills to drop off a conveyor belt, though it didn’t make much sense visually and I couldn’t find a good solution to create this piece with nice composition. The original simply looked very cluttered.
