Don’t Panic: Second Draft

I have modified the Don’t Panic poster a bit. There was a problem with the colors in the first draft and I think I’ve got it fixed with this one. Stupid web-safe colors! Also have played around with the lighting a bit. The problem with the first draft was that the dot of the exclamation mark was hardly visibe. I’ve moved the light source to the bottom left to get a better cotrast for the dot. Somehow I have a nagging feeling though, that this lighting would come across as too harsh. Does it? Also had to move the type on top around a bit to get a better grid focus. The trouble with type in most cases is that they just don’t fit well. Here too the sass-hoopy comment spills on to the third line, making it look a bit odd. I hope that it can pass off for “Conscious Irregularity”! The font used is Gill Sans by the way, except for the apostrophe in “Don’t” which is Helvetica. The apostrophe of Gill Sans is positively hideous! But apart from that it’s a lovely font. Something uniquely British about it!
