This is so lovely it makes me want to shout from the rooftops about it!
CentQuatre on rue d’abervilliers in the 18eme arr continually puts out stunningly designed advertising. This is no exception. Inspired by the Swiss and Bahaus movements, it features great use of colour and typography. It’s for their 2011-2012 season of events. Apart from being a fantastic piece of architecture -with a quite morbid past- Centre quatre is also a social experiment in bringing the creative arts together in a part of Paris that is decidedly shabby and far off the well trodden tourist trail. It will host many musical and art events over the next 6 months not least the Telerama Dub festival, The Gotan Project and many more.
The multiple page A2 printed broadsheet reproduced here (Just a 1/4 shown) is a refreshing piece of publicity in a sea of mediocrity. Makes you wanna visit the place doesn’t it?
