About the book

Every year the association 100 Beste Plakate e. V. presents awards to honour the most innovative and trendsetting poster designs from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The yearbook has fast become the go-to source for graphic artists, designers, and advertisers. Even today, the traditional printed poster is still regarded as the ultimate challenge in the graphic arts. The 2019 yearbook focuses on how designs can be described verbally. What is the relationship between language and image? How can visual codes and phenomena or trends be captured in words? Thirty designers, curators, artists, architects, and theorists were invited to join the project and to describe the selected posters. The purpose of this exercise was not to come up with a standard jury statement, but to point out ways of interacting personally with the poster: either by offering an objective description or by delivering a subjective critique in the form of an essay. Florian Lamm and Jakob Kirch, who created this year's book, have translated this conceptual task into their design by dividing the catalogue into two parts. While the 30 text contributions have been united in a booklet, a separate image section presents the corresponding posters. Text in English and German.





100 Beste Plakate e. V. Biography

Since 2002, a yearly competition has been organised by the association 100 Beste Plakate e.V.. A changing international jury selects innovative posters from some 2000 submissions in categories such as corporate design, advertising and artistic prints. Established institutions, graphic design agencies and advertising companies from Germany, Austria and Switzerland as well as students from all German-speaking universities and design schools, are eligible to take part. The idea is not only to honour top achievements but also to do justice to the medium in all its variety. The association has been a long-standing independent player in the genre, responsible for promoting creativity and providing motivation to innovate. The cover of 100 Beste Plakate 16 was designed by Yuan Wang, a student at Hochschule fur Gestaltung Offenbach. Yuan's designs were selected by the executive board from a range of works during a presentation of Professor Sascha Lobe's class, who manages the project. Yuan, born 1988 in Jiangsu (China), has received a number of international awards (TDC New York, Golden Bee Moscow International Biennale of Graphic Design, iF Design Award, Berliner Type Award) and was one of the laureates of 100 Beste Plakate 15. ...
