The Happy Show

Erich BrechbĂĽhl


Selected for the 28th International Posters Competition of Chaumont, 2019 

In this announcement poster for the exhibition Stefan Sagmeister, The Happy Show at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, Erich Brechbühl uses an image that is recurring in Sagmeister’s work and that is synonym of parties, happiness. The balloons fill practically the whole surface of the poster, as if happiness, subject of the research and reflection of this exhibition, was about to explode. The colour of the poster, a bright yellow, is the same colour as the background in the exhibition design. Stefan Sagmeister, who is graphic designer himself, addresses the question of happiness with humour, through video documents, installations, data visualization, placing the exhibition at the crossroads of science, design, art and everyday culture.

Erich BrechbĂĽhl, born in 1977 is Switzerland, is an independent designer based in Lucerne. Co-founder of the Weltformat Graphic Design Festival in Lucerne and member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) since 2007.
