How Posters Work

Editorial Design

How Posters Work is an exhibition being shown at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York and our class was tasked by Ellen Lupton to create a book design for the posters to live in. I activated the space using two hanging lines for all the images and a flexible 12-column grid. The cover is constructed from the diagrams inside the book, all of which explain movement in posters.
