Promotional poster for the play “Jeder stirbt für sich Allein” (engl. “Every Man Dies Alone”) based on the book originally written by Hans Fallada in 1947. The poster is part of an ongoing series for “Das Theater Erlangen”. It is based on the true story of a working class husband and wife who, acting alone, became part of the German Resistance. They were eventually discovered, arrested and finally executed.
Using distinct silhouette illustrations, bold colors and bespoke typefaces every poster reflects a visual interpretation of each play. The series is complemented by an annual booklet containing announcements, timelines and background information.
Senior Designer Anna Bühler states, that she focused on creating a contemporary and contrasting design, connecting the theatre’s almost 300 year old history with its contin-ued relevance in the 21st century.
Over the years, the poster series received several awards including “red dot awards”, “European Design Award” and “100 beste Plakate”. Read Less
