Some wonderful type / grid driven pieces here via helloairecords. There isn’t much info up there about the posters, perhaps someone can fill in the blanks.

Strict use of grids and colour palette. Much of the posters was produced by Swiss graphic designer Josef Muller-Brockmann. He produced Grid Systems in Graphic Design and The Graphic Artist and his Design Problems. Look for his books from YouWorkForThem or seek more information from Duane King’s website Thinking For A Living:


p.s. I’m a bit surprised your not familiar with Josef’s work.

Yes, Müller-Brockmann! My favourite approach to type in posters. Oh, the font he used was almost exclusively Berthold’s Akzidenz Grotesk.

Imagenow should still have the neat catalogue from the Brockmann poster exhibition they had in 2004. It’s really worth getting.

Hi Scott,

I was wondering,
since alot of your work is based on ultra tight typography and all,
it would be cool to have a post on the top 10 fonts that you use and some write up on them perhaps. Then in the comments we could discuss our favorite fonts and stuff.. Would be cool~
