Fons Hickmann M23: Amnesty International Posters

Work / Graphic Design

Graphic Design: Fons Hickmann M23 put together some powerful political posters for Amnesty

Thus far we’ve only featured Fons Hickmann in the context of their work for cultural institutions. They’ve continually produced stunning work for Dresden’s Semperoper and Wuppertal’s Impulse Theater, drawing on the heritage of their locales to create imagery that has an inherent nostalgia but remains distinctly modern.

In this instance though, they’ve got a different kind of design in mind: the iconic slogan poster. These punchy, minimalist images accompany each new issue of Amnesty International’s Amnesty Aktion magazine, taking a subject high on the charity’s agenda and reducing it down to a hard-hitting graphic. A little harder to swallow than their theatre catalogues perhaps, but all the more effective for it.
