The Summer Exhibition

Added on by David Caines.

I have designed the publicity for this year's Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. The bold poster design is a contemporary take on the Victorian playbill. The exhibition is somewhat controversial, a mixture of the traditional still lives and pet portraits, the usual famous RA alumni, and a sexed-up room curated by Tracey Emin which seems designed to shock. I went with my friend Jake who found the mix quite bizarre.
