National Theatre Posters: A Design History is written and compiled by design writer Rick Poynor, and offers a comprehensive survey of the theatre’s best posters from the 1960s to the present day For more than 50 years, the National Theatre has used posters to promote and give visual expression to the enormous range of productions that it stages. While other major British arts organisations also utilise posters, it would be hard to find in-house relationships with designers as continuous and stable as those seen at the theatre Across the decades, the National Theatre’s poster designs have been the responsibility of just five individuals: Ken Briggs, the theatre’s first graphic designer; Richard Bird; Michael Mayhew; Charlotte Wilkinson; and Ollie Winser An enormous range of graphic approaches has been used – typographic, illustrative and photographic. This diversity of expression reflects the designers’ temperaments and skills, the fashions of the time and changing conceptions of the most effective way to communicate graphically with the theatre’s audiences National Theatre posters, when viewed collectively, comprise both a history of design at an institution central to British cultural life, and a case study of the way the poster as a medium has evolved in Britain in the last half-century

The Art of Campari

Since the nineteenth century, Campari has been responsible for some of the most distinctive and innovative commercial imagery created in Italy. Founded in Milan in 1860, the company quickly began to pursue a dynamic approach to marketing its products, harnessing the new power of the advertising poster. Aiming to create a sophisticated brand, Campari worked with some of the most celebrated designers of the early 1900s, including Leonetto Cappiello, Marcello Dudovich, Adolf Hohenstein, and Marcello Nizzoli It was, however, the ground-breaking campaigns created by the Futurist artist Fortunato Depero that became Campari's most celebrated commissions. From the mid-1920s, his bold, witty and geometric designs modernised Campari's look, creating an unmistakable visual identity; his designs were also the basis of the famous conical Campari Soda bottle, launched in 1932. Depero's belief that the publicity poster would be 'the painting of the future' continued to inform Campari's post-war commissions, which included elegant and vibrant designs epitomising the spirit of the 'Swinging Sixties' Drawn from the company's extensive archives in Milan, the book features Belle Époque posters and original artwork for the revolutionary campaigns of the 1920s, in addition to equally striking examples of post-war graphic design and a range of vintage crates, glasses, plaques and other ephemera
