FIRST OF MAY



THIS POSTER WAS A PERSONAL WORK TO CELEBRATE THE 1ST OF MAY IN BERLIN. I'VE NEVER SEEN SUCH A BIG PARADE – AS ON THE ‘MAY DAY IN KREUZBERG’

It refers to the street fairs and demonstrations organized by leftist and extreme-left groups in Berlin‘s borough Kreuzberg on the 1st of May. I wanted to create a strong, unique and simple poster for the ‘May Day’ in Berlin, Kreuzberg, where I have been living at this time. So I decided to make up the number one just out of the German word ‘Mai’ [May] in several directions. The color red emphasizes the whole demonstrations and therefore the meaning of the poster.
