The Mozart Requiem project was in response to the following brief from a University group
“make a poster that used a modern graphic with a nod to the past”
This brief led me to the history of poster design, actually straight to a particular style from the 1920’s, the International style.
International Style or Swiss Design emerged in Russia, the Netherlands and Germany in the 1920’s. This style has had a huge influence on graphic design and begins with a mathematical grid and looks at creative ways of working within the grid.
