The Exploding Girl

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Henry David Thoreau

I first caught sight of this poster design in a Google thumbnail -- and even in that small, pixelated space I was awestruck by the perfect arrangement of these elements. The sensitive placement of the title is particularly lovely. The rounded corners of the frame give the viewer the feeling of looking in on this girl through a viewfinder.

Everything speaks to the profundity of everyday intimacy.

(I can always tell a good design by the way it can move me to absurdly faux-poetic prose.)
