The exhibition draws on the personal archive of Professor Ian McLaren, who was a senior member of Aicher’s design team.
As well as displaying the pictograms, posters and other designs, Munich ’72 – Design Legacy will also offer a first-hand account of the design development, its subsequent commercialisation and its impact on later Games, such as London 2012.
There will also be a one-day symposium, exploring the continuing appeal of the designs, with contributors including Spin’s Tony Brook and Lucienne Roberts of GraphicDesign&.
Munich ’72 – Design Legacy, is at Herbert Read Gallery, University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury, Kent CT1 3AN. For more information visit www.munich72.org.
