Roald Dahl Six Word Story

For this brief we had to choose one of Dahls stories and then create a Hybographic (type faces combined), A3 poster using the story of our choice. It took me a while to decide on a story let alone the six words. These are some ideas I had:

The Twits

  • Tinned Sardines and other Nasty Things
  • Beastly Tricks and some Tinned Sardines
  • The Smelliest Nastiest Couple of People
  • Horrible Secluded Couple Play Beastly Tricks

Fantastic Mr Fox:

  • Intelligent Fox Feeds Fellow Starving Animals
  • Intelligent Fox Feeds Fellow Hungry Animals

I decided to go for Intelligent Fox Feeds Fellow Starving Animals. I ran the idea past David, our tutor, but he said it was to obvious. He said it should read like a headline giving a little bit of information without revealing to much. I went back to the drawing board and then came up with this gem.

  • Marvellous Mammal Schemes Against Ferocious Farmers
