Half a century! 50 years since its formation in London in 1963, Icograda, (the world body for professional communication design) returns to the place of its birth to celebrate half a century of global activity.
‘Posters Selected from the Icograda Archive’ at London College of Communication, (itself celebrating 50 years at our Elephant and Castle site), seeks to explore the relationship contemporary design and illustration has with its illustrious past – in particular, the role of the poster.
Selected – 15 of today’s leading practitioners choose 45 memorable posters from the collection. Admire their selections and explore the rationale behind each choice.
