Graphic Design: More tremendous work from Fons Hickmann for theatre event

Posted by Emily Beber,

It’s only been a few months since we last mentioned the striking work to come out of the Fons Hickmann M23 studio in Berlin but they’ve done it again, this time working for the Impulse Theater Biennale 2013 where radical theatre meets radical design.

Beautiful photography meets 1940s style newsprint typography, collaged and then fed through a riso printer. Fons Hickmann indulge us with bold images, camera-filled hands and inverted feet playing across double-page spreads. And the monochromatic style is punctuated by the occasional burst of red print – wonderfully simple but constantly bringing the attention back to the text.

Even before the Biennale has happened the design alone is making us nostalgic. But worry not, Fons Hickmann have kindly designed matching Impulse Theater Biennale 2013 stationery including headed paper, envelopes, thank you cards and even wooden ink stamps so you can be fully equipped.
