100 Poster Battle 2 — Sharing Cultural Identities


100 Poster Battle 2 — Sharing Cultural Identities is an experimental, bilingual poster design project supervised by design educators Lars Harmsen and Markus Lange, that brings together students from different universities to design posters.

In a first round, black and white basic motifs were created, consisting of typography / text, or image / illustration / photo, or background. Just like in screen printing, the various layers were to be brought together in such a way that they all use the previously created pool.

Symbolically, this is already the first step of sharing cultural identity: that everyone has formulated their idea and vision in advance, but then mixes it with the thoughts and images of others, combines—to then also see from others how their own work moves and acquires new meanings. In terms of content, they covered three topics: Fashion & Subculture, Food, and City. The cover reads, "Inspired by daily news, based upon true stories."

The project and publication are a model for collaborative, cross-institutional projects, and showcase modern approaches to poster design, form-making, and visual communication in the 21st century.

The volume features an Augmented Reality cover,
