Is this for some kind of college/uni brief? :icon_wink:
I think the power would come from your choice of words. The words people are least likely to want to hear in many cases would be the truth. So possibly an awkward truth or some kind, or maybe a truth that society would perhaps prefer not to know?
Once I had the words/statement sorted, I could try and position them with shapes/lines in a fitting manner.
Oh, and I'd avoid all references to 9/11, since to me that really seems like an obvious (and easy) choice.
Hey desi, yep language barriers certainly play their part in societal issues but when you expand on that thought you naturally and inevitably have to tackle racism - that in itself could be its own typographical project - and a huge one at that.
I think ARRIVALS has pointed you in a good direction with contentious issues. Language but more specifically dialects could certainly play a part :icon_thumbup:
