Poster, Obsessive-Compulsive Design, March 10, 1999
This is a Poster. It was designed by Edward Fella. It is dated March 10, 1999 and we acquired it in 2002. Its medium is offset lithograph on cream wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
In the age of digital design, Edward Fella stepped away from the keyboard so to speak to create expressive typographic systems that resemble scribbled illustrations. Fella’s signature abstract fonts exhibited irregular spacing between letterforms that were often drawn-into, making his designs original and difficult to standardize. In Fella’s work, type is dynamic, moving around the page, breaking out of the grid through a non-conformist process similar to they style of this poster for an AIGA/NY event on “obsessive-compulsive design.”
