Type Rules | Typography

For this project we were given a different typographic rule each. We had to produce two posters, one using just two colours and the other being completely free. I was given 'Thou shalt avoid rivers within justified text.'

Firstly, I looked up what 'rivers within justified text' are and the definition I found was; 'In typography, rivers, or rivers of white, are visually unattractive gaps appearing to run down a paragraph of text. They can occur with any spacing, though they are most noticeable with wide interword spaces caused by either full text justification or monospaced fonts.'  

From this I produced two posters, using that definition.
