Hugy 54

Posted by Scott




Loving the details on this New Orleans Wild Cats print by Theo Ballmer. Looks nice next to the (totally unrelated) G59 poster by Franz Fässler.

The Hugy 54 poster really resonates with me for the reason of it feeling honest. With a thirds composition it makes it easy for me to look at.

Hi guys, glad you like the posters. The Theo Ballmer (1902-65) poster was done fairly late on in his career. He trained at the Bauhaus, during the 20′s he created some of the most cutting edge design work, including the now famous Büro and Norm posters. He went on to teach at the art school in Basel.

There was a great article about him in eye magazine a while back. You can read it here:
