Designer Panos Vassiliou credits the low and high-waisted sleek geometric forms with the Art Deco aesthetic and attributes the rebellious personality to the bold condensed grotesques of the fifties underground music scene. (Although the brave non-conformity and rule breaking also nods to the avant-garde, constructivist and Dada styles).
With a large x-height, the monolinear collection (includes two separate families Venue and Venue Condensed plus a complimentary Stencil version) each family has a wide range of stylistic alternates (for personality and flair) and each face includes 5 weights and supports Latin, Greek and Cyrillic.
Album covers, Gig posters, daring editorial designs, next time you need to grab attention, and challenge preconceptions, use this imaginative and playful collection.
And because Venue pays tribute rebels and rockers, the first 100 designers to purchase a complete family will receive a handprinted silkscreen ‘ROCKER AT HEART’ poster.
