Müller–Brockmann Remix

Posted on June 13, 2010

PootlePress asked me to see what I could create in just one day using their awesome new WordPress plugin Canvas Page Builder.

Page Builder for WooThemes Canvas allows you to create stunning pages quickly and easily with widgets. Say goodbye to long confusing pages of shortcodes and sidebars. Say hello to speed and creativity – Pootlepress

The plugin enables designers to swiftly create grid based layouts and so it seemed appropriate to base the designs on some of Josef Müller-Brockmann’s classic layouts. He is perhaps the most well-known Swiss designer and authored several highly regarded books including Grid Systems in Graphic Design.

The first two designs are interpretations of the layouts from that famous book (pages 129 & 131) and the second two are more literal takes on his concert posters for the Tonhalle in Zurich. The designs are by no means pixel perfect reproductions of the originals but aim to show the power of the plugin to create clean effective designs in a short space of time.

PootlePress article on the project.
