Wolfwang Weingart: Provoked by a Mishap

Lecture Poster

 

This design lecture poster was created using photo-collage featuring the site of the lecture. Before coming to a solution for the poster I researched this famous graphic designer’s life, creative experiments, and approach to form-making. My research into Wolfgang Weingart allowed me to explore a corresponding techniques for image making of which I included a number of clues into his life and work that would be spoken about in the lecture. I was fascinated with his 8 year engagement with the letter ‘m’ and his personal logo abstracting his mother, his father, himself, and his dog. These and other allusions ultimately manifested into a montage of what was to expect during the lecture.
