Poster "CINEMAFRICA"

"Cinemafrica" is a biannual African film festival in Zurich. This poster is the 6th one I designed for it. I started the series with a zebra pattern using black and white printing color. In the following posters it became a kind of a concept just to use black and white color in different order and in different transparency of white, when printed on top of black. (One exception that proofs the rule: in 97 I used silver in place of white.) Three times I printed on brown paper, like I did this time. The main thing that changes is the pattern. The poster is printed by Albin Uldry, silkscreen, 90,5 x 128cm.
