Catalogue and poster
The poster shows one of the uses of a “style” for the Gallery. which used various weights of Gill typeface.
The style, the result of a closed competition, was intended to be used as a guide for different designers. The only stipulation was the use of the Barbican Art Gallery namestyle in a long black rectangle and that all the type should be in a variation of
Gill Sans or Gill Bold. The style had a short life.
The typefaces used in the catalogue were Eric Gill designs: Joanna and Gill Sans.Client: Barbican Art Gallery
