Here Collins explains that by setting the world of Panem in a dystopian future, she was free to explore and provide commentary on the disturbing times that we live in.
This slide uses one of my favorite fonts: IMPACT LABEL. I remember having a DYMO label maker as a kid, and I loved the physical craft of squeezing out labels. I just did a quick Amazon search and it turns out that DYMO still makes Embossing Label Makers! Looks like this is going on my wish list.
There is a lot that I love about the nostalgia and handmade feel of this font. What I do not love is that it has a transparent text feature. What this means is that it represents more of a hole in the label rather than the raised look that you see in this slide. I correct this by adding a white rectangle behind each line. Otherwise the background image would show through. Also, the line spacing is set to 1.2 to make it seem like these are separate label strips. The other extra work that goes into this is adding a space at the beginning of each line to make it look more authentic. There is a lot that goes into making something look simple.
