Design for The Festival Miroslav Krleža

To announce the "12th Festival Miroslav Krleža", the festival posted posters and billboards throughout the city of Zagreb, Croatia. I created this design two years ago for the "10th Festival Miroslav Krleža". The design was quite successful, so instead of assigning a new design every year, the festival decided to make this their permanent identity. 

Miroslav Krleža (1893-1981) was the most celebrated Croatian writer. I created characteristic Krleža’s profile out of all incarnations of Croatian flags during his lifetime. One of his most famous novels is titled "Zastave" (The Flags).

I created this design with help from Studio Imago from Croatia.

You can see more images of my designs for prior festivals here and here.

The exhibited work is a small part of my donation to the The Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography at Cooper Union.

"Trust Elvis" by Paula Scher

My recent acquisition, two different sizes of Paula Scher's poster "Trust Elvis" from 1979.  Paula designed "Trust Elvis" along with "Best of Jazz" for CBS Records and they are probably her most rare and iconic early posters.
