kunst=böse/design=lieb (art=nasty/design=nice)
poster on the occasion of a lecture at the »72h ohne kunst« vernissage in mannheim, 2012

is art nasty? is design always nice? isn’t nasty a nice word? do viewers like nasty typography better than a nicely-behaved typeface? are these questions just too black-and-white? the poster is an invitation to a lecture on the difference between art and design – and an invitation to make up your own mind. with a typeface so badly distorted that nasty becomes nice again, a vice becomes a virtue in the viewer’s eye.
