For my final design I developed the bites out of letters approach but in a much more stylised manner. I used the circular eraser tool with the paths highlighted to cut away sections of each character to make it look as though a chunk has been eaten away. I then used a guideline set towards the left of the page and marked up certain characters from each line. I like the abstract approach and I feel the design works with story very well. It also implies the type is sinking into the water, both with the composition and the gradient blue background which represents the water.
