Poster #1:
I chose the font IMPACT

I used this font because it was a STRONG font. It looks
like a font that is very authoritative and very warning. I
BIOHAZARD: also used ALL CAPITALS so that people could realize it’s
really serious and important.
ONLY AUTHORIZED PERSONEL ALLOWED IN
THIS AREA. I chose this kerning because the close letters help show its
seriousness.

Poster #2:

Cupcakes
I chose the font Bahaus

I used this font because it was looked fun. The rounded
edges made was good to sell cupcakes because it wasn’t
too serious. I made the font big to emphasize the cost

$3 since it was cheap.

This kerning is wide...makes the sign look less serious.
