Copenhagen-based artist Luc Fuller curated a group exhibition at Gether Contemporary in May 2016 entitled Reader in which five artists from the United States and Europe explored books, or rather the ways in which we interact with books. For the show’s opening, I collaborated with Luc in creating a limited number of posters featuring a typographic treatment overlaid with Luc’s drawings (see directly above) which were then screen printed in Copenhagen. The design ultimately used features a wave-like typographic manipulation that serves as an abstract play on the show’s name. Other typographic treatments were explored in the process and are shown here as well.

Artists featred in Reader: Leo Fitzmaurice, Nicholas Gottlund, Lina Viste Grønli, Conny Purtill and Suzanna Zak
