Interesting conceptual use of typography. Set vertically with red highlight and placed over the person's eye, it functions pictographically as dripping blood, with the white highlighted text as a needle. Art-historically, it visually relates to El Lissitzky's "Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge".
Neville Brody is an typographer, his design usually combine the words to become a illustration, like this design. It's very impressive that use typography to illustrate a portrait. The gorgeous part is the usage of color and light is very nature, which makes the portrait very realistic. Also every piece of word is different to another that can identify by the fonts usage and size, which means every word is unique on the design and specifically released on the portrait.
