Zodiac constellations: Type and Style

Type and Style

Since I want the main focus to be in the constellations and I want the person that interacts with the poster to feel and understand how he or she is part in the universe and his relationship to the stars, I want the type to be neutral, clean and not distracting. So I am going to use Helvetica in white or light gray over a dark background. The style is going to be a fusion of a sky map with Leonardo DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man.
