“Brno Echo: Ornament and Crime from Adolf Loos to Now” was a design exhibition curated and designed by Abbott Miller and held in conjunction with the 23rd International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno, one of Europe’s largest festivals of graphic design. “Brno Echo” staged a lively dialogue between historical and contemporary design around the subject of modern ornament. Adolf Loos’ 1908 manifesto “Ornament and Crime” served as the conceptual foundation for the exhibition that looked at the recurrence of concentric lines and patterns that constitute a fundamental grammar of modern ornament, connecting everything from the Wiener Werkstätte through Pop Art to current variants of retro-futurism. For the exhibition, Miller designed a series of four posters built from the “B” Jiri Hadlac designed for the original Biennial identity in 1964. The posters utilize that letterform to create the full phrase BRNO ECHO. The posters were silkscreened for a deep color saturation that gives them an unmistakable look and feel.
