Portal 2 Poster

 
 

STILL ALIVE by GLaDOS

This print features the song lyrics from one of my favorite games, Portal 2. The objective was to choose a line from a song and develop original display letterforms to represent the song and theme. I created a massive hand drawn grid that was 86 x 64 inches and used more than 1000 sugar cubes.  This print was done as part of a typography class.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Process

First, I explored the different types of materials I could use to create the letterforms that was inspired by the lyrics, "you just keep trying till you run out of cake." Such as using cake, frosting, and cubes that represented as pixels.
