JOHANNESBURG POSTER

DESIGN + TYPOGRAPHY

OPPIKOPPI

This poster forms part of an once-off initiative by the durban based company called workingclass. The brief was to create a poster for your city, that shows what it is that you really love about it and subsequently why it is you choose to stay in it. Each city was allocated two colours and the design had to be executed using only these. We decided to create an alphabet of the things that we love, (and even don't quite love, but that we felt spoke to the essence of jhb, and conveniently, the alphabet backwards spells the acronym for jo'burg forwards.
