The Raven Typography

Edgar Allan Poe is one of my favorite writers, so I felt compelled to create a design based on one of his most famous works. I wanted the design to be more typography based and focus on the iconic raven. At first I wanted the design to just be a typography cloud and have the words take the shape of the raven. In the end, I felt illustrating a raven and having the black shape dominate the background helped make the overall design stand out more.
