The Zukunft Series
11 posters about the future, de toekomst, l’avenir, il futuro, budućnost, and the Zukunft
The poster series “The Zukunft Series” deals with the future. an asymmetric line-up of alltogether 11 students, young Graphic Designers, artists and international reclaimed Designers from Offenbach, Frankfurt, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Rom, Luzern, Novi Sad, London and Leeds were invited to design the future.
The connecting link between all the posters is the font “Zukunft” designed by Lorenz Klingebiel. The combination of the two opposed typefaces “Garamond” and “Grotesque” is supposed to be a contemporary re-interpretation of the typographic view on the future in the tradition of “Futura” (by Paul Renner; 1927) and “Avenir” (by Adrian Frutiger; 1988).
The posters (50x70cm) are printed in offset with full-colours in a limited edition of 50 (+11) each:
They can be purchased singulary (25 each; 6€) or in the “complete collection” (25x; packaged in a timeless mailing tube; 60€)
After being released on May the 11th in Offenbach, “The Zukunft Series” will go on a travel through Europe (If you would be interested in having us, get in touch!)
