The Modernist The Modernist

We’re super pleased to announce that a selection of our posters are being published in a new title from Berlin-based Gestalten. Official write up:

Today’s designers and illustrators are synthesizing the best elements from past eras of graphic design to create a new visual language with a reduced and rational approach. The Modernist documents this uniquely contemporary, yet timeless aesthetic that is built upon the rediscovery and seamless melding of classical type elements and collage of the 1950s, the geometric patterns and graphic elements of the 1960s and 1970s, and the vector graphics and computer-aided montage of the 1990s. With its fresh perspective on the legacy of past craftsmanship and quality in outstanding current work, The Modernist expands our understanding of what modern graphic design can be.

The book is due for release in early May, available from all good book stores and of course Gestalten themselves. Peep some of the spreads here.
