    Taropak – Międzynarodowy Salon Techniki Pakowania i Magazynowania is an international fair for packaging and storage technology in Poznań, Poland. In 1976, the organizer Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie commissioned Tadeusz Piskorski with the design of the posters. For his second poster for the 1977 fair, Piskorski introduced a design showing three stacked boxes of different colors, with the fair’s name and the year rendered in Neo Prisma. This design was reused in adjusted form for all biennial events until 1987.

    The copy is added in all-caps Times New Roman and Univers, respectively. The pixel letters are not part of the original design, but were added as a watermark by CYRYL – Cyfrowe Repozytorium Lokalne Poznań, the virtual museum of the City of Poznań.
