Wallpaper Season - Purdue

Submitted by jonvalk on October 5th, 2012 at 11:08 PM

OK, so I'm REALLY behind because of some other not-so-fun projects and a full work week, but here's a wallpaper I put together today in some spare time.  I'll try to get it re-sized and all soon, however, I was short on time.  Per some of my critiques on the last few, I tried something new.  This wallpaper is almost exclusively typography driven.  It was fun to try to re-create an old-style typography.  I hope you like it.  As always, constructive criticism and suggestions are welcome!

ASIDE: I know the game is not at home.

EDIT: I made the type larger for old men like me...and added "OF" for those who wondered why it said "Ann Arbor" when the game was in West Lafayette.

Version without the "of" (which I prefer):

Go Blue, beat Purdue!

Yes, I know.  That is the one thing that doesn't come out well in the type.  It's supposed to be suggesting that "Messrs Robinson, Hoke and Co" are FROM Ann Arbor, Michigan.  I was referencing a piece when I made it and that seemed to be the flow.  I will try to add an "OF" somewhere in the type to make this more clear.
