Over 40 years ago, Atl Aicher and his team brought the 1972 Munich Olympic Games to life with their bold and beautiful designs that became the revolutionary identity system for the Munich games that it is today.
Last year UCA Canterbury in the UK celebrated his iconic work by hosting an exhibition of posters, informative designs, pictograms and a range of print and promotional materials from the 1972 Olympic Games. The exhibition was held at the Herbert Read Gallery and if you were lucky enough to see this great exhibition, comment and tell me all about it.

Went along to The Kemistry Gallery in Hoxton on Saturday to catch Mr T: The Posters of Jerzy Treutler – a celebration of Treutler’s work from the 60s & 70s, and classic Polish poster design. The exhibition marks his first solo show in the UK and the gallery proudly presented a selection of over forty of his prints, including classic film, sport and event posters. It was so inspiring on so many different levels from grids and structure to colour and typography… and illustration.
Hugely exciting to be involved in the digital marketing of the iconic Russian brand Stoli Vodka (its Cyprus connections are a bonus). Wonderful stuff!
I always love going along to the Design Museum down at Butlers Wharf, and this occasion did not disappoint. The ‘This Is Design’ exhibition was an opportunity to marvel at some of the fantastic iconic designs in interior, product and graphics design. Brilliant!
10 years ago, The Art of Looking Sideways by Alan Fletcher was published, a seminal book contemplating the differences between pictures as words (and vice versa), the pleasing incongruities and “serious science” behind perception, process and the imagination that fills in the gaps. The anniversary is being celebrated in the exhibition Mind Over Matter at the Kemistry Gallery opening this week. Featured here are some of the word spreads from the book.
