I developed this project at Llotja School of Art and Design in Barcelona.

The project’s brief was design a DIN A3 poster dedicated to Neville Brody, a transgressive, experimental, innovative and purely creative typographer, who revolutionized graphic design by breaking some rules.
Thus, the poster had to convey the stylistic influences of the era and the values that characterized Brody’s work.
Firstly I created a content hierarchy to decide a composition of the elements within the page. I determined what typographies the author would use to ensure good legibility at a certain distance. Finally, I made a grid, but always following the principle of Neville Brody (typography allows the luxury of conditioning the whole design).
The poster contains a brief biography and a list of typographic families designed by the author.
