    Poster by New Zealand based designer Catherine Griffiths representing the city of Auckland for the 2015 Fête du Graphisme, Paris, using Kris Sowersby’s Calibre. Catherine about the design on her website:

    I love the feeling of it — the atmosphere — and the way it shifts and changes with scale. As if seen from high above, through a passing long white cloud, or mists of spray drift, the scattered coordinates reference the city’s position between a gulf and a sea, and the narrow isthmus on which it lies. Auckland — Tāmaki Makaurau — is built on a volcanic field. The myriad cones, visible as small mountains and islands including the iconic and symmetrical Rangitoto, are described by the circular marks and forms, also symbolic of the land, rain-forest, and the people. Our tiny pin-point location in the vast Pacific Ocean. The marks read as punctuation — speech marks, commas, fullstops — and acknowledge the many voices of our multi-cultural city, represented in the simple geometry of colour, texture and woven pattern.
