Another Typographic Quote Poster (WIP)

1 Attachment

Work in progress! So don't be too harsh, but general feedback would be appreciated :) Nothing on it is final, it's just me roughing it out and dumping down the first thing that came to mind when I open Photoshop.

We need a poster to go in a square back-lit frame in the entrance to the office (like this http://goo.gl/uE3VJw). The big boss chose this quote and I had a go at making it look pretty last night - this is the first attempt.

For the bits you can't read, here's the full version of the original quote, attributed to both Johann Wolfgang von Goethe or Haim G. Ginott - no one's quite sure...

“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
