JIANPING HE/ HESIGN BERLIN: 100 BESTE PLAKATE 12

Photographed in the Holzmarktstraße, near Ostbahnhof, in Berlin, the poster on the left was developed by Jianping He from hesign Berlin for 100 Beste Plakate 12 – Deutschland Österreich Schweiz, an exhibition showing the prize-winners of the 12th edition of an annual competition that crowns the 100 best poster designs of the previous poster year in the German linguistic region. One of the many things that make the competition so unique is that the posters are selected on account of their visual impact alone and stem from a broad array of contexts, with no preference given to one specific area. The first time the posters are separated according to category is during the presentation of the results. Headed by Christian Brändle (CH), this year’s jury consisted of Ronald Curchod (F), Joanna Górska(PL), Eike König (D) und Josef Perndl (A). The winners were selected from more than 1 700 entries by some 500 graphic design studios. Accompanying the show is a year book, also designed by Jianping He, and released by Hermann Schmidt Mainz. As in previous years, the exhibition is living its première at the Kulturforum, Matthäikirchplatz, Berlin, before traveling to Nürnberg and Essen in Germany, Luzern in Switzerland, and Vienna. Through June 23th. (mb) www.100-beste-plakate.de/
