A poster about posters

Former Creative Future winner Zak Kyes created this series of posters in collaboration with Wayne Daly to accompany artist Ryan Gander’s talk at the Architectural Association in London last week. In keeping with Gander’s work, which focuses on language, ideas and communication, the poster itself became an artistic collaboration between the artist and Kyes. A conversation between the two about the nature of poster design forms the text that runs down the right hand side of the poster, while Kyes commissioned nine illustrators to draw a portrait of Gander at the artist’s request, because, as he explains, “I have never been drawn, and often watch those guys outside the Pompidou drawing people but am always too reserved to get one done.” Gander’s favourite of the nine renditions is by Ed Fella, shown above.
