    In this type-only design for Daniel Buren’s exhibition at the STUDIO theater in Warsaw, designer Kuki Krzysztof Iwanski takes advantage of type and scale to deliver an impactful poster with little more than the artist’s name.

    “Buren” stands front and center in the design, occupying nearly the entire height of the poster, and allowing my typeface Fit to live up to its name and fit itself to the available space. Du Nord supports the design with the exhibition title and supporting text in the brochure.

    I was especially excited to see the banners hanging between the theater’s columns, where both first and last name occupy the same width.

    Thanks to Julien Priez for bringing this to my attention!
