Edits is a new limited edition poster series curated by Edit featuring: Bas Koopmans, Collective Approach, Duane King, Hey Studio, Manual Creative, Mark Boyce, Leterme Dowling, Sane & Able, Studio Makgill, Toko, Trevor Jackson, This Studio & last but not least Nitzan Hermon – who is also behind this project.
Each designer was asked to represent a musical genre using one shape and one type (stating the genre). I had a chance to get a little more information out of Nitzan about bringing all these designers together.
Can you tell us a bit more about yourself?
I am a (nyc based – moved a couple of months ago from London) designer as well as well a DJ/ label manager (Fine Art Rec) and often engage in collaborative work – this is the launch project for Edit.
Where did the idea for this poster series come from?
The posters were curated over the course of a year. I was initially influenced by Excergian’s series and thought the concept would work well if applied to music genres, the brief was represent a musical genre in one shape and one typeface (only stating the genre).
How open where the designers to getting involved in the project?
The brief was not made public and I got in touch with designers directly. All of the designers were great, and very engaged in this (there are actually some extensions/ further access points we’re working on).
