José González Gig Poster // Zwölf Berlin

September 30, 2010

I recently stumbled on this awesome José González gig poster done by Berlin design trio Zwölf. The poster, which has since won several international awards, uses a typeface named “Heinemann” also designed by the team.

For the autumn 2007 tour of swedish singer-songwriter José González, we developed a new screen printing ink based on metal filings, which meant that the posters began to rust once hung out in the raining autumn weather. The separate background printing of a second substance accelerated the corrosion at selected sites. Afterwards, the tour announcement (“In Our Nature”) completely disappeared and only the name of the artist remained.

You should really give their website a view, they’ve designed some killer typographic posters.
