I was stuck for a while on which quote to choose for the typography poster. Then I was sitting in uni and heard someone who was trying to get some work done and was obviously irritated with their friend who was speaking loudly. “Please, be QUIET.” They said the first half of their statement (which definitely was not a question) in such a quiet calm voice, until they reached the final word. “Quiet” came out so loudly that they disturbed a few people around them through their frustration. It is ironic really as usually if you were to think how you would write ‘quiet’ you would assume it would be small and lower case. However this is definitely not the way the girl in question intended it to be said. I chose a plain black text as it is almost as if it would be a sign placed around rooms that expected silence.
