Friends of Jan Rajlih, former students and the Biennial of Graphic Design Brno commissioned a poster from 100 international poster artists for the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jan Rajlich Sr., founder of the International Biennial of Graphic Design in Brno.
Sometime many years ago, in some seminar, I was sitting behind Jan Rajlih. Rajlich was bald on his head but on the sides his hair grew “wild” looking. A convincingly gentleman. I made a quick sketch of him in my sketchbook. For this poster I used my old sketch, I added poster like color surfaces to the picture and it had Jan Rajlich both physically but above all mentally.
An exhibition poster, or rather a poster made for an exhibition, does not contain "functionality" or efficiency, its effectiveness can only be judged by its charm.
