Hijacking type

by whitewirestudio

Beautifully Banal is an exhibition from the Type Directors Club where they’ve asked designers such as Ed Fella, Catalogtree, Gail Anderson and others to take a classified ad from their local community newspaper, hijack it typographically (their words), and create a fancy collectible poster. They’ll auction these posters off in May with the proceeds going to the TDC scholarship fund. You can see the ads side-by-side with their posters on their site. Some of my favorites:
