Description

This is a horizontal composition with a red band running across the bottom third of the composition. The red becomes a red-orange in the lower right-hand corner. The phrase “Powerful enough to make a difference” is divided into two lines stacked directly on top of one another. The phrase is in white. In the lower right-hand corner, another phrase in white is stacked into four lines, one on top of the other. This phrase, “For emergency use soft shoulder” is divided randomly to fit the space and it is written upside down and backwards. The upper two thirds of the composition is filled with another two phrases with the one phrase, “Get with the Action” dominating the majority of the space. “Get with the Action” is in blue against a white background and the words are stacked in three undulating lines. Part of the word “the” is in red. To the right of this phrase is another phrase, “Wine that rejoyces man’s heart” is in yellow stacked in four lines and written upside down and backwards.
