Whore-ible Blow Jobs

Hello-

For this project, I wanted to implement typography, color, and incorporate my personal touch of humor. I chose using four different destructive hurricanes with female names and I thought the 2 most destructive. I began to work on the heading/copy first, which was a departure from the traditional design process. I used the word 'whore' to replace 'horr' in 'horrible' and the 'blow job' as a metaphor for destructive winds associated with hurricanes.

For the 4 female hurricanes, I assigned each with a color similar in value, yet on the muted side. I wanted to stray from high saturated colors and pastels. For the map of affected states, I wanted to use 'flat design' with some dimension, so I had the map on a perspective/tilt with the hurricane category numbers lying on top with a subtle drop shadow.

For secondary infographic information, I used 'maximum wind speed,' 'number of deaths,' 'average wind speed,' and 'money blow.'

He's my design:
