Favorite Movie Quote

"Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage."―Erik Killmonger[

This is one of my favorite movies ever. This quote just makes it 10 times better. I remember seeing this movie for the first time and being blown away by after the character said this especially in the context that he was speaking in. It was the only quote that came to mind when I was reading the assignment description because it is powerful and it kinda sticks with you after hearing/ reading it.

I found the picture I wanted to use for the poster first. I knew that I wanted the picture to be black and “stoic” in emotion. Luckily, I found it pretty fast. Then, I uploaded the picture as a poster onto CANVA. After that, I had to find the exact quote because I did not want to embarrass myself by mixing up the words. When I confirmed the text, it was time to put it on the poster. This was the difficult part. How do I allow the text to show on such a distinct background??? I tried to make the text pink but that took away from the message I was trying to portray with the design. Then I tried to highlight it, which I did not want to do because I thought that would look tacky. However, I could not figure out how to highlight on CANVA. So, I ended up just making the text box smaller so that it could fit on the darkest part of the picture with white words. Voila! DesignAssignments, DesignAssignments1974
