Millimages

Millimages is a poster exhibition about graphic design history, this year the theme was “appropriation”. I was asked to create a vibrant programme that would appeal to families with young children. The visual on the front of the programme is inspired by Constructivist designer Rodchenko’s poster of Lilya Brik. This visual has been re-appropriated so many times that it even feels familiar to those who have never seen the original work! I explored different ways to re-appropriate Rodchenko’s work, and created a two tone visual that uses geometric shapes, blocks of colour and a technique which merges text and image to create a bold and dynamic layout. The visual appears to burst from the centre, imitating the way that Rodchenko’s famous poster explodes from the side.
