It's awards season in Hollywood, which means that little golden statues will soon be bestowed upon many of our favorite (or least favorite) motion pictures. We all know that Trajan is Hollywood's font-of-choice when it comes to movie titles and posters, so it's only fitting that we spotlight Trajan in Battle 34.
// THE CHALLENGE
Create at least three swash characters for Trajan. You can either:
A) Set the word "BLOCKBUSTER" or any other movie-related word.
B) Design a movie poster using your swash characters in the movie title.
Winner take all, no holds barred. May the best designer win.
