New Work: ‘This is a poster.’

(Click image for larger view)

Yes, this is a poster. It was designed by Angus Hyland and Fabrian Herrmann for a lecture given by Angus at the University of Plymouth last spring. But it has since taken on a life of its own, possibly because it makes plain the secret desire of all posters: to be entered into design competitions.

The poster was silkscreened in black and white on 25 different colors, in a limited run of four copies per color. It is featured in the June issue of Creative Review.
