RIBA Stirling Wilford Poster

RIBA Stirling Wilford Poster

The brief for the promotional materials of the Stirling Wilford exhibition at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London was to communicate the architecture in such a way that it would not be elitist. The promotional materials included tube posters, invitation cards, exhibition packs and a catalogue. Shadow projections of different buildings were used as the main feature in order to turn imposing buildings into what looked like colourful toys.
