The Graphis Poster Annual is a publication that represents the best in international poster design. Our sister company, G+A Zürich is among the 2015 award winners for their distinctive exhibition posters.
For the University of Zürich, G+A designed two different styles of posters to support recent exhibitions. Göttlich Menschlich, translated Godly Human, was an exhibition in the University’s archeological collection dedicated to Roman-made bronze pieces found in Switzerland. Vitrina was an exhibition that featured an architect’s photographs of mannequins from Athens, with the posters created as a series.
G+A also developed a poster series for No Name Design, exhibitions that showcase famous industrial designer Franco Clivio’s collection of everyday objects and tools. In this case, one poster was created for an exhibition in Gewerbemuseum (in Winterthur) and the other for one in Mudac (in Lausanne).
These posters are particularly striking for their bold use of imagery, with contrasting typography playing a secondary role.
