For an extremely special 35th issue of Posterzine we showcase the work of renowned German designer, writer and infamous typographer Erik Spiekermann. This "Don't work for assholes" issue has kindly been supported by MOO. Proceeds from Posterzine sales will go to Grafik in the hope of someday bringing it back into print, so please show your support and keep print alive!
He founded MetaDesign (1979) and FontShop (1988) and is behind the design of well-known brands such as Audi, Bosch, VW, German Railways and Heidelberg Printing to name a few. Erik was also managing partner and creative director of Edenspiekermann with an impressive international team with offices in Berlin, Amsterdam, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In this fabulous issue, you can find an exclusive interview with Erik where he tells us why we shouldn't work for assholes with a glorious fold-out A1 version of his original letterpress printed poster.
This publication / poster is lithographically printed by Pressision Ltd onto quality G.F.Smith Naturalis paper using process black and warm red ink.
