“Being an alumni, is was with great pleasure (and pride) to bring this exhibition and event to LCC. It’s a natural fit for this celebration of five influential graphic designers and the collaboration between two typographic heavyweights Alan Kitching and Monotype.”
On Thursday 18 September, London College of Communication will hold a shared Private View consisting of a trio of design retrospectives as part of the London Design Festival 2014. Five giants of graphic design are commemorated in‘Alan Kitching and Monotype: Celebrating the centenary of five pioneers of the poster’. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Tom Eckersley, Abram Games, FHK Henrion, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Paul Rand, all of whom were well-known for creating iconic and memorable posters.
