As last year, Demian Conrad Design designed a striking identity for the Lausanne Underground Music & Film Festival 2011.
A very unique opportunity to see Euclid BP alternates in use before the typeface is released.
“This year the LUFF superstar is Diamanda Galás and to create a unique poster we used a special font designed by the type designer Emmanuel Rey. Thanks to a great range of alternate we could customize the typography in a rich and radical way.”
— Demian Conrad

Euclid BP was featured in the first issue of Poster Tribune.
They asked me to explain the font, here is what I wrote:

Aber rein deswegen habe ich mir die Ausgabe gar nicht gekauft. Mir ist beim durchblättern nämlich gleich die Typo ins Auge gesprungen. Adeline Mollard und Floyd Schulze – verantwortlich für die Gestaltung – verwenden die drei großartigen Schriften: Simplon von Emmanuel Rey, Romain BP von Ian Party und Larish Neue von Radim Peško. Und auch sonst gefällt mir der grafische Auftritt des OPAK sehr gut.
Article on OPAK magazine and Simplon BP typeface on the Slanted Magazin blog.
Read it here (german).
1976, 4th April: The Sex Pistols play the first night of a residency at the El Paradiso club in Soho, London. Rotten tells ‘Sounds’: “I hate shit. I hate hippies and what they stand for. I hate long hair. I hate pub bands . . . I want people to see us and start something, or else I’m just wasting my time”. (via http://www.rockmine.com/Pistols/)
For the Pistols typeface shown above, I was inspired by the following flyer – the first flyer of the Sex Pistols.
