Every year the world's only graphic design museum, located in Breda, The Netherlands, curates a leading, international Graphic Design Festival.
For this years edition of the festival Toko was asked, among 48 other international designers, to design a poster for the festivals poster project. With decoding as its main theme, the 49 unique posters form a tour, leading visitors to the various festival venues around the city of Breda.
Tokos poster submission is an ode to genetic code which appeared on Earth with the first cells. Codes of cultural evolution arrived almost 4 billion years later. (Marcello Barbieri)
Our understanding of the mathematical principles behind our physical world is increasing and it provides us with 'tools' to create a new and exciting digital world. Most 'codes' are virtual and a state of mind but some are 'present' and provide systems to generate new forms of architecture and e.g. cures for diseases. The human 'interference' in the natural world is what we visualized through our design by using a cross section of Cedar wood and altering it into a human creation.
