    A personal response and tribute to Müller-Brockmann that utilises and interprets his design principles but does not emulate them to somehow make a carbon copy of them. The tribute was inspired by reading his book Grid Systems in Graphic Design. Font used was Akzidenz Grotesk, a favourite font of MB, the text included in the poster is as follows:

    Josef Müller-Brockmann, born in 1914 in Rapperswil, Switzerland, was a designer who found calmness and serenity in great reductive and constructivist design. As someone with several muses including theatre, music, mathematics, logic, illustration, teaching, and structure, Brockmann used these necessities of his life to boil down his work to its simplest form, creating beauty through unburdening his work of the unnecessary. — Sara Remi Fields
