Official 2008 Oktoberfest Poster

Above: Poster by Oliver Weiss, winner of the 2008 honors. Visiting MPLS’ own Black Forest Inn last night, a friend and I noticed the collection of old Oktoberfest posters they have on display during their celebration of this ubiquitous event. Stop by to have a look at those sometime, this latest stays close to the established vernacular.

Above: Who makes a poster like that anyway? Here is the man himself, from a feature in his local paper, the Handelsblatt (linked here to his own website, in the Who am I? section). More here on the full range of products that accompany this poster.

Does the economic abyss have you down? Just remember, all is well as long as there is a illustrator–graphic designer–multimedia–journalist like Oliver smiling somwhere.

Kopf hoch!
