Fidel Peña of Underline Studio based in Toronto is responsible for the above poster (left), which won a Gold Award in Poster Annual 2017. Designed for client Advertising & Design Club of Canada, “The posters were used as part of social media campaign and sold at the event to raise funds for the ADCC.”
The studio takes on “a wide range of projects in brand, corporate, and marketing communications” and they are “global in outlook and tastes, blending classic and emerging design thinking in work across the private and public sectors.”
The poster above to the right is another Gold Award-winning poster submitted to the Poster Annual 2017 competition. Designed by Tivadar Bote, the poster was created to promote the Alberta College of Art and Design.
Tivadar Bote’s “work is based on a strong European tradition of German and Austrian trademark design, composed of bold geometric forms coupled with a whimsical, playful element underlining his work. This design esthetic is also strongly influenced and adapted from early woodblock printing in Japan, moku hanga which is a technique best known for its use in the ukiyo-e artistic genre.”
