I represented the words energized and drained in such a way that they are clear opposites. Energized is written with long vivid strokes to give the type individuality and energy. Drained uses a thin sans serif type that fades into the background to show its lifelessness. Energized is the main focal point and drained is being absorbed into the dark background.
