Apeloig wins top ISTD prize

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

Philippe Apeloig (soon to be profiled in CR) won the Overall Award at this year’s International Society of Typographic Designers awards for his Théâtre du Châtelet poster campaign

ISTD judge Freda Sack said: “Philippe Apeloig often creates special display typefaces for his work – this Châtelet poster series shows his skill with, and use of unique letterforms, combining them with a clean, sans serif, to great effect. Here Apeloig’s typography has a musicality that is in perfect harmony with the subject matter.”

“With its tonal variation, rhythm and dramatic emphasis, the Opera poster is my favourite of the three. The scale and impact of these posters demand your attention. The information can be read and assimilated within seconds – an essential quality for a good poster.”

Among the Premier Awards were, Cartlidge Levene for its Guardian office wayfaring programme (featured in CR Feb 09)
