Poster by Félicité Landrivon (Brigade Cynophile) for ‘Cinéma ethnosensible’, a small film festival organised in Lyon (Fr) by Météorites, “around the Sensory Ethnography Lab who, in the tradition of North-American visual ethnography, produces genuine cinematographic UFOs.”

Félicité’s style is characterised by an air of mischief and fun. Her designs, often jam-packed full of imagery, typography and colour, place an emphasis on “legibility and copiousness” with a nod to underground and vintage material. Among a long list of inspirations, Félicité references 60s and 70s counterculture press, punk minimalism, psychedelic zines, anonymous design, amateurism, vernacular fonts, oddities, clumsiness and dogs. — It’s Nice That

  1. Note that the ‘accent aigu’ on the e of Cinéma is missing in Reservoire Grunge. This smudgy, rounded version of Annonce was probably named after this Reservoir Dogs movie poster (which seems to use Swiss 721 Bold Extended) – and it comes with a very limited character set. The designer may not have found it necessary to add an accent herself.
