Stadt Theater Basel (symphony), 1961
This poster for the Basel State Theater richly and subtly evokes the power of the International Typographic Style in the hands of a master. Armin Hofmann's design is built on contrasts between the photo of musicians in motion, the immovable bars that evoke musical harmonies, and black, white, and red colors. It captivates our attention as it did the jury of the Swiss Poster of the Year Competition, which gave it an award in 1961.
