Poster Collection 12
Edited by the Museum of Design Zurich
One of the most innovative French graphic designers, Catherine Zask's posters have the elegance and coherence of DNA, and indeed she works with the building blocks of writing and communication letters. Here, in Poster Collection 12, the series from the Museum of Design Zürich, she allows the letters free rein to be musical, to trigger echoes, to store images, but never unmoors them from their task of providing written communication in an appropriate and comprehensible form. The dialogue with the client and the public is crucially important to Zask: “I make graphics to include the others.” Her work for SCAM (Société Civile des Auteurs Multimédia), the Hippodrome theater in Douai, and the École d'Architecture Paris-Malaquais are evidence of the remarkable clarity and unmistakable individuality of her work.
