IFF’s next project is in part a celebration of the centenary of Roger Excoffon (1910-1983), the Marseille typographer & graphic designer responsible for numerous classic fonts such as Banco, Mistral, Antique Olive, Choc and others. IFF has commissioned a number of artists and designers to create new text posters which relate, utilize or appropriate some aspect of Excoffon’s work. The resulting posters will be displayed around Marseille and also as an exhibition.
The artists exhibiting include Fiona Banner, Martin Firrell, Ryan Gander (above), Liam Gillick, Stéphane Le Mercier, M/M(Paris) and Laure Prouvost.
Exhibition runs from January 8 to 22, 2011.
