Communication designer who likes social justice. Currently using a theme by Langer; eventually I’ll build a new one. Twitter: @davidamrock.

This “poster” design shows a list of visual artists and the visual themes and motifs they “own.” I googled it and found a webpage from Cueto Project that shows photos of the piece as it looks in person.
(Image: The famous “Hollywood” sign replaced with “YouTube” in all caps.)
Poster by the Paris-based design firm Vier5, for an exhibition called “Exposition.”
From their site:
The work of Vier5 is based on a classical notion of design.
Design as the possibility of drafting and creating new, forward-looking images in the field of visual communication.
Though I am generally weary of traditional poster formats, I guess you could read the traditional poster here as a restraint inside which the designer must focus on the newness of the visual. And I think that in 2012, the concept of a “new” visual is a bold one.
Also it’s good that they make their own type. I wish I saw more designers doing that.
Tried Googling the artist. Los Angeles County Museum of Art has a page about him which includes this piece. His an interesting sentence from that page:
The characters are readable, given time, and they often act as puzzles for the viewer to figure out.
