Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
'To Death with a Smile' Exhibition Poster
Mumedi’s “To Death with a Smile” international poster competition challenges designers to create a poster that explores the topic of death and how it is celebrated from a cultural perspective. ‘Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow’ approaches the topic by using elements of exaggerated emotion and dark humor often used in classic horror movie posters. The dramatic hand done typography and bright, illuminating color palette pay homage to these iconic macabre adverts while showcasing death in a light hearted way.
