International Poster Competition 2018 Winners
The posters were designed for the publishing of photo book 'Blindness (Aveuglement)' by Infrared Press based in Seoul, South Korea. The poster was created with image archiving, analogue and digital collage, offset printing and screenprinting. There are three media which play a fundamental role as a major source of entertainment for the public, to help turn their interests off from politics: sex (pornography), sports and cinema. However, this type of unconscious control over the public is still effective in modern society and variated in different ways in modern society around the world. Through the vertically divided composition of images and background which arouse two eyes and these three media; sex, sports and a screen, the posters ask the spectator about their unconscious political passivity and the meaning of the word that ‘blindness’ contains.
In joint 2nd place: EUROSTANDARD: Ali-Eddine Abelkhalek, Pierrick Brégeon & Clément Rouzaud Urbaines 2017, 2017 (Switzerland)
The poster was designed for Les Urbaines Festival 2017 in Lausanne, Switzerland. Over the course of three days, 40-odd performances, shows, artworks, concerts, DJ sets and workshops—entirely free for the public—take over the festival’s different venues in Lausanne and Renens. EUROSTANDARD say:
"The essence of the communication for the 2017 edition was created in part from a smartphone software. The objective was to be able to produce, process and, if necessary, animate the content subsequently declined on different media. Graphical experimentation using "new" technologies is one of the main approaches of the Eurostandard collective, without remaining on the surface of what they propose. The posters is printed in silkscreen, in 3 colors by Lézard Graphique.
Because of the small print run, we decided to focus on the visual rather than the typeface layer. The idea is to use the initial U on every support of the communication (animated and fixed.) Every poster is different, three colors are used to create many. Up close there are a lot of details, from far away just a big U. The poster is divided in 4 parts created with the abstraction of artists images.(Czech Republic) diptych, impression and stamp
The poster was designed for Prague music record label Endless Illusion and created by producing a stone stamp which was printed into sand. Jan says: "So far the last event from the series of the Haas Effect. The main intention was to escape at least for a while the computer area. The poster is a diptych composed of two posters, the first is the stamp, the second is the printed result into the sand."

The posters were commissioned by the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (Mucem) and made from photographs of the Mucem by Paul Rousteau. The series are silk screen printed by Lézard Graphique at 120 x 176 cm.
