Living and working in Cologne, graphic designer Simon Roth has a wealth of strong poster work under his utility belt of design. Bright, punchy and bold, there are multiple nuggets of cool composition and imagery in his work. While there’s an air of familiarity to some posters, like the orderly type set against elegantly folded paper, his portfolio still has great variety. Many of his posters have been created for artist talks and exhibitions, with the Simultanhalle series he designed with Lisa Pommerenke standing out most to me. It’s great to see Simon’s uninhibited use of colour not just highlighting the event but roaring about it.
