The Wall

A collaboration with Grafik – the foremost publication on graphic design and visual culture – this part of the exhibition offers nascent designers, stretching from those in the final stages of their studies to practitioners battling through the first few years of work, a platform to expresses themselves both visually and verbally.

Grafik have brought together a selection of talented contributors from the first year of their online incarnation and asked each to create a typographic poster for a film of their choice; the challenge being to communicate the ethos of a motion picture using typography as the main expressive element.


These posters stand alongside the main show not only as contemporary examples of how type can engage with the moving image, elevating both forms of expression, but also as a testament to the coming generation of graphic designers, of which these individuals represent some of the brightest.
