The Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design has just unveiled its summer show graphics, created by the school’s alumni student Kirstin Helgadottir.
Having previously worked with clients including Sonar Festival and Architectural Research Unit, Kirstin was a brought in to create a suite of designs for numerous printed publications promoting and relating to the school’s summer show. They take a deliciously lo-fi aesthetic, with grainy photocopied backgrounds housing warped type and speckled layouts. Making the most of a look that’s characterised by deliberate errors, they’re a lovely counterpart to rigid design rules and precision. Acting more like punky zine pamphlets than slick exhibition graphics, it’s great to see a brave and unusual approach that perfectly matches the Cass’ graphics for other events, like its Hothouse series.
