Milton Glaser and I, among other artists, got invited by Sarajevo 1914-2014 project to create posters which are going to be exhibited in June of this year. Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, represents the meeting point of civilizations, cultures and religions. Milton came up with the idea for each of us to create posters which work side by side together, "meeting" each other. We divided the letters of the word Sarajevo. Milton got A, J, V and O and I got the letters R, A and E. We split the letter S.
Milton created his poster first, and it looked very modern to me. Because of that I decided that I would create "old" poster. Poster about past Sarajevo, 100 years ago. For that I decided to create posters with the look of filigree and crochet for both of which Sarajevo was well known.
With a little back and forth between us, we managed to match the posters in color and looks.
Below you can see Milton's poster, my poster and two possible poster combinations.
