Oh Vienna! Not just the birthplace of action art, but also the home of Lukas Haider, whose beautiful poster designs had us browsing round his superbly designed site for many glorious moments. The designer started his career through music, creating poster and album art designs, and later decided that he would make his fortune with his aesthetic eye, studying at information design at FH Joanneum.
Seems his move has paid off, if this wonderful series of posters for Adana Nights is anything to go by. Combining unusual colour ways with shapes that sneak over the edges, the textures and typographic sensibility are beautiful. “The task was to create a flexible and coherent poster layout that reflects the attributes of the invited artists,” says Lukas. “The use of texture and mood-related colours give every single poster an individual yet clearly recognisable visual appearance.”
