Josef Müller-Brockmann

By exposing the essential character of a design, Müller-Brockmann’s life work was directed toward revealing the objective determinants of each visual message. He achieved this by examining all of the key elements involved in the design process, reducing each one of them to their fundamental nature. (Purcell, 8 )

Juxtapoz: Poster Art

“One might claim screenprinting is making a comeback, but the truth is that screenprinting is bigger now than ever. In the past 10 years, screenprinting has ballooned in popularity and a new class of artist has emerged. These artists stepped away from the psychedelic posters of the ’60s and developed their own aesthetic – incorporating everything from hand drawn type to found objects. Their poster have become sought-after collector’s items for art and music fans alike.” (Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine, 9)
