I was going over some of my old pieces and found a set of posters I made for class two years ago. The assignment was to create a poster for a famous artist's gallery show. Seemed easy enough. I remember being very proud of these posters. The colors were nice, the spacing seemed provocative, and I even made a little graphic inspired by his geometric series.
I have since grown as a designer. Instead of culling these guys from my portfolio, I decided to design a new poster using the original prompt.
This time around, I paid particular attention to spacing and typography. Albers was part of the Bauhaus movement and I wanted to incorporate that into this poster.
I chose Trueno Extra Bold and center aligned all the text with the nestled square graphic. The original 's' didn't align well so I tweaked it for a more uniform look. The resulting text blocks works much better with Albers' style.
