Bowie Poster in Creative Review
The Changing Faces Of Bowie V&A poster has been featured in the March issue of Creative Review.
“Over a hundred artists and designers have contributed to a typographic screenprint created exclusively for the V&A as part of its activity around its imminent David Bowie Is exhibition (March 23-July 28). Our good friend, Blam (aka Mark Blamire of Print-Process), approached dozens of designers inviting each of them to produce the word ‘Bowie’ in a favourite or bespoke typeface of their choice or creation. The final print showcases 101 responses from contributors that include Ian Anderson, Jonathan Barnbrook, Anthony Burrill, Matt Cook of Intro, Crispin Finn, Angus Hyland, Trevor Jackson, Michael C Place, Emmi Salonen, and Claudia Klat and Tony Brook from Spin.
The 50x50cm print, entitled The Changing Faces Of Bowie, has been screen printed by K2 Screen with matt white ink onto rainbow holographic, 240gsm Mirri paper and can be bought exclusively from the V&A’s shop, priced at £45. Each print comes with a certificate and a full list of all the contributors.”
