100 Beste Plakate 23

X/100 — Expect Nothing — Appreciate Everything

Author: Greta Landmann

The motto of this year’s 100 Beste Plakate is enticing and delivers on its promise: Every year, the association 100 Beste Plakate e. V. honors the most outstanding and creative poster designs from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The accompanying yearbook has long established itself as the standard reference for creators in the graphic and design scene and is now being published for the first time by Slanted Publishers.

The 2023 yearbook presents all 100 winning posters from the 100 Beste Plakate 23 competition in large-format images, along with information on their content aspects and the context in which they were created. It discusses current poster design and highlights trends. The jury’s introduction by Toan Vu-Huu, alongside a foreword by Fons Hickmann, an essay by Helene Roolf, presentation of the jury, and a contact register with credits of all designers, clients, and printers, completes the publication.

The book’s theme, “X out of 100 / Expect Nothing—Appreciate Everything,” ensures equal presentation of all 100 works, avoiding any impression of ranking. Each poster / series is treated equally, marked as one of the 100 nominated by the jury.
