Bruno Monguzzi

  • Bruno Monguzzi: Poet of Form and Function Poster
  • After studying the Swiss-Italian designer I set out to design a poster in much the same way Monguzzi might. The two typefaes used, Bodoni and Univers, are informed by the dichotomy between his Swiss nationality but inherently Italian aesthetic.
  • For the letter "M" I created a relief sculpture out of illustration board and spray-painted the piece white; I then used a photograph of the relief for the final poster.
  • For the name "Monguzzi" I printed the word out and wrapped it around a cardboard tube and placed it on a scanner until I got the right effect.
