The love for his hometown Passau, the love for exceptionally designed posters and the love for good typography inspired Manuel Kreuzer to this project. Starting in September 2016, he designed a poster every week about special cultural events in and around Passau—for a whole year: 52 “Passau Posters”; were the result! There was only one rule: no colors, no pictures. On the one hand, the graphic artist wanted to sound out limits: What surprises the viewer? Where are the limits of legibility? On the other hand, he wanted to show what is possible with strict typographical design—and it quickly becomes clear: That’s a lot!
The posters thematize various events around Passau: subtle art exhibitions, tough techno parties, big concerts and festivals up to classical opera—all events Manuel Kreuzer would go to himself.
This book is not a rulebook, but a source of inspiration and ideas. And above all, it is a book full of great writings! Manuel Kreuzer wants everyone to open their eyes to the subtle differences of all types of fonts: Use well-designed fonts and use them with all the sensitivity and attention they deserve.
