Poster, Konkrete Utopien in Kunst und Gesellschaft, ca. 1990
Hans-Rudolf Lutz is known for challenging the common conception of modern Swiss typography and graphic design as stark, exacting, and clean. He was particularly interested in the social potential role that graphics could play in visual communication. This poster has the customary type and ordered grid layout, but overlays free-written type. Lutz paid close attention to a more popular, informal use of graphic design (graffiti, shop signs), which he often incorporated into his work.
