I know for my broadside, I want to take the more simplistic route with my visuals. I want my broadside to be visually appealing but I want the words on the page to be what keeps the viewer’s attention. What is being said is more of a priority than how it looks, in my opinion. Whatever picture I do include what it to be in the background to favor the words on the page but not take your attention away from them.
I wrote the poem for this broadside years ago, when I when I was in high school. I was so head over heels for a guy, I felt that he was like the air i breathed; ESSENTIAL for my survival. Very dramatic, I know, but we were all 14 once right? The poem gives a sort of light and airy feel when reading it so when thinking of possible visuals to put on the page, I could only come up with light and airy object i.e feathers, guts of wind, leaves, etc.. However, I felt that those things were entirely too cheesy and over used. I wanted to do something a little different. After a little bit of thinking, I was able to come up with a few designs. I’m not entirely sure which I will go with, but I’m more leaning towards the bubbles.
