Habits is a typographic poster inspired by James Clear’s best-selling book on the fundamentals of habit formation. My aim was to design a poster that captures the written wisdom from this guide.
This design was awarded the Graphis Poster 2024 Silver Award, and is exhibited on the Graphis website and published in the print and digital copy of the Graphis Poster 2024 Awards book.
To capture the written wisdom, I turned to quotes from the book that I had highlighted. I decided to create a striking visual treatment to bring to life my favorite quote - “You have to fall in love with boredom”. I combined cursive and bold lettering in a geometric composition, creating interesting pockets of negative space that guide the viewer’s eye. Around the text, I weaved in icons and memorabilia that are associated with repetition and mundanity to drive home the quote’s meaning.
In addition, the color palette of sleepy blues and greens, dusk-like yellow and lavender gives a romantic impression of a lonely desk lamp in the middle of the night.
