To expand on the Pentagram d&ad brief, I decided to make a poster series based on the three designer that I had included in the publication collection. I wanted to experiment with alternative methods of print and have used a variety of materials which best reflect each designer. The posters are hypothetical and would be used to advertise the talks that the designers gave for the Typographic Circle. Each poster contains the character bio that appears on the covers of the book series.
Jonathan Barnbrook - Laser cut into slate, reflects that one of his main sources of inspiration is primitive stone markings and gravestone carved letterforms.
Marina Willer - Screen printed onto hand-dyed cloth, with layered stitching. Reflective of her colourful Brazilian heritage and influenced from the idea that she softens corporate brand through implementing familiar high street visuals.
Anthony Burrill - Screen printed onto white paper with acetate overlay. Reflects the simplicity and structure of Burrill's work. Placed in a glass frame to convey the fact that his inspiring slogans are often framed up on design agency walls.
