J.Muller Brockmann is a swiss graphic designer, his work stood out to me as it singifies how much graphic design and posters have changed over the year. Despite the above poster not having much colour, it works well as the colours contrast with each other. The colours go from dark to light starting from the middle. The fact he’s cleverly put the bold black text in the centre makes it the most readable. The element that catches my eye the most with this piece of work is the small circle in the centre. This is the main focal point which makes you read the typography vertical.
He has also cleverly made the small white typography slanted in order to read it at an angle, in contrast to the black text.
The element of him making each line a different length is also eye catching as you can tell he’s put a lot of thought into the overall layout.
