Ligature Show:
Typographic Exhibition

Student project, 2019

Responsibilities
Concept, poster design, space

Ligature Show is organized by the Type Club at Ringling College of Art + Design and is a collaboration between Graphic and Motion Design students.

Open for students from all disciplines, with categories such as drop cap, type in motion, hand lettering, and editorial, the exhibition showcases the typographic excellence at Ringling College of Art + Design. This year’s theme revolved around the materials of Brutalism and the spirit of the Bauhaus. The campaign references the color palette of the German art and design school, and uses the newly redrawn stencil typeface, Joschmi, designed by Joost Schmidt in 1932. Using stencils, the promotional posters are coated with spray paint, to not only create a unique look for each piece of work, but also replicate the rough texture seen in the concrete of Brutalist architecture.
