Boston Marathon

This is a poster for the 2017 Boston Marathon, which is one of the most prestigious, well-respected races held annually. The main colors are gold and blue, which are the official colors of the Boston Athletic Association. The word “BOSTON” is in Helvetica, in which the letters overlap each other. The large letters are semi-transparent to make it easier to distinguish between each letter. The word “marathon” placed in the middle is set in House Script font. I put a silhouette of a woman running through the bottom “O” to illustrate the anticipation for this race. The rest of the typeface is set in Gill Sans. The top, middle, and bottom elements are set in white color for balance and symmetry.
