novum 08.18 »posters
Posters are omnipresent, like no other medium. Because they are found everywhere we go – in public spaces. And they are loud, unconventional and courageous. The August issue of novum, dedicated to posters, features a panoply of unusual production techniques, strong concepts and first-class creativity. The cover interprets quite literally the multi-layered nature of this medium, while the irregular structure of Card Highline E21 (by Fedrigoni) is suitably reminiscent of paste residues.
A magazine cover, too, must in a way be a kind of poster, even though it´s not as prominent in public places as its big brother. Berlin-based designer Sven Lindhorst-Emme solved the problem by interpreting a further quality of posters on the cover. In public spaces they are visible, but often pasted over or torn down. They are quite literally therefore a multi-layered medium. And so the novum cover opens up a view of what went before.
All this and more awaits in this issue of novum!
