Vintage publishers and Kingston University graphic design students collaborated on this live brief to publish a series of posters representing the entire text of ‘On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century’ by Timothy Snyder.
The book looks to compare present day personality politics with the regimes of Hitler and Stalin. Each poster was interpreted by a different designer. The result is an eclectic collection of different typographic styles giving each poster its own “visual character”, says Vintage creative director, Suzanne Dean. The type-led, highly graphical designs followed a strictly black, white and red colour scheme.
In a team of three I worked on chapter 11 a text about the investigation of media and how we need to make educated interpretation of the media we consume on a daily basis be that online or in print.
The posters went on display as part of an installation on Leonard Street, East London from 27 March – 3 April 2017
