Hansje van Halem balances between typography and optical illusion

Hansje van Halem balances between typography and optical illusion | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

It’s tricky to implement the intricate tricks of an optical illusion in a book cover design without the finished product appearing slightly heavy-handed, but designer Hansje van Halem does it with poise and perfectionism. She’s worked as a freelance graphic designer since graduating from Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietvield Academie in 2003 (as her About section explains) and her enjoyment of what others might find to be repetitive shines through in the illusory patterns in her portfolio.

Bureau Mirko Borsche creates series of posters for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Bureau Mirko Borsche has worked with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra on a series of posters that advertise the institution’s next season of concerts. The Munich-based studio has collaborated with the orchestra in the past, having created posters for it since its 2013/2014 season. For this years’ series, the studio has used its custom typeface developed specifically for the client. “We developed a unique typeface because they are mostly programme posters using the names and titles of the concerts, so we have to be able to generate personality through type,” explains Gian Gisiger, who worked with Mirko Borsche on the project.

Stunning New Book Documents 100 Years Of Black Cinema In Posters | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Since 1973, cinephile John Duke Kisch has been documenting the evolution of African American film through a beloved, but sometimes overlooked medium -- movie posters. From "Siren of the Tropics," starring the inimitable Josephine Baker, to "Cotton Comes to Harlem," an Ossie Davis favorite, Kisch meticulously found and saved the stunning visual advertisements for films that adorned city streets and theater halls. Eventually, he amassed over 38,000 posters from 30 different countries, amounting to a massive visual history of Hollywood's relationship to race and representation.
