US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey visited East Carolina University to share what inspires her writing. My design was chosen to promote this occasion around campus and throughout the town of Greenville. Trethewey’s work is influenced by growing up in Mississippi with mixed racial heritage. I wanted to convey Trethewey’s work with layered graphical elements and an over arching feeling of depth and meaning.
“I think there is a poem out there for everyone, to be an entrance into the poetry and a relationship with it.”
