Götz Gramlich rules OK.

Above: Götz Gramlich, Glass Candy poster, 2010. I have to apologize right from the start, this post is long overdue. Aside from being an incredibly talented designer, Götz is also extremely generous and shared some of his silk-screened posters with me some time ago (see further below). Surely you might agree, he also has the coolest name in graphic design today.

These first two posters are featured on his website, which offers an exhaustive overview of his world. Herzlich Willkommen!

Above: Götz Gramlich, Carambolage poster, 2009. If you open the contact page on his site, you’ll find the image reading,”Götz, Dienste von Qualität,” which means, “Götz, Quality Services.” The term dienst, however, reminds us of an age old idea of graphic design and typography, that of service! Götz’s work shows a high degree of idiosyncrasy and versatility all at the same time.

Above: Götz Gramlich, 30 Anschläge poster, 2006. I first came across Götz’s work while walking the streets of his native Heidelberg some years ago, this poster above, simple and powerful, had a stopping power that overwhelmed the pedestrian zone.
The poster below, equally stunning, comes from the same time period.

Above: Götz Gramlich, Ka40tte poster, 2009. His typographic work is equally stunning, and Götz is eager to cite his years working with Niklaus Troxler as a guiding influence, but I think he has developed his own voice. Spend some time with this German master’s work and I think you will agree.

Servus, Götz and thank you for your
generosity and inspiration!
