designers' rationale:

My approach was to combine the design language of Braun with my own design language. The poster consists of “Braun 55–95” set in a typeface constructed using a strict grid of modular circular units. Each unit is made from an image of a circular Braun component. The component accessories are often included to add a sense playfulness and context. The poster provides glimpses of the Braun style over the four decades.

about the systems print collection:

Thirty-four leading graphic designers and studios were

invited to produce a poster design on the theme of Braun systems design. From repetition and development to nostalgia and critique, the diversity of response to the systems brief offers a snapshot of the international graphic design scene at a fascinating juncture, one in which the legacy of modernist graphic design appears with renewed but uncertain relevance. At the same time, systems samples some of the best and most challenging work currently being produced.

The systems collection is curated by das programm and produced in association with Braun.
