    Poster for the 1975 East German re-release of Planet of the Apes (USA, 1968), printed in fluorescent day-glow colors. The unknown designer didn’t revert to the original logo drawn by Ed Benguiat (see the House Industries page about their Simian for more info). Instead, they went with tightly spaced caps from Dynamo. This display face doesn’t have the unusual extenders to the top and bottom, but rather features some laterally protruding bits, or semi slab serifs. Accompanying text is set in a bold condensed weight from Gill Sans – incidentally, a similar style was used for road signs in the GDR, likewise in black on yellow.
