This poster was made for the “DESIGN IT! 2019 poster contest for the vision of the event: SWISS ART EXPO 2019 which was held from August 15th to 19th. With over 80,000 visitors daily, it is one of the most visited places in Switzerland. The composition is entirely made from the typographic sign “SWISSARTEXPO 2019 each letter is transformed into a 3D object functioning as multiple exhibition halls in which enormous crowds are moving and looking at art. “Poster design is a fast way of transporting new messages and ideas around the world. It’s a field in which experimenting with variety of media and thinking about specific problems gives you a sense of expanding horizons. For me it’s always showing my most inner thoughts and transforming them into understandable and direct visual language” says Ivan.
