Essay

Layering music on paper

Ronny Hunger wins a Swiss Design Award with his label ‘Comet Substance’. Each of the three poster projects presented in the competition has to do with music, his great passion. In their figurative dimension, his posters layer and superimpose pictures, outlines, forms and colours suggestive of music that he ingeniously transfers to paper. Often he intervenes directly in the printing process: matching, correcting and changing. For him the two processes – design and printing – are closely intertwined.
Record Store is an exhibition project that, as it moves from place to place, creates access to new, up-and-coming yet still largely unknown musicians and is conceived as a mixture of shop, art installation and meeting place for music lovers. Each presents 200 ‘records’ with sleeves individually designed by Ronny Hunger; visitors first choose their sleeve and can then listen to the music that goes with it via the internet. Record Store therefore combines the ‘old school’ music shop with the new channels of music distribution.
Elmo Delmo is a music venue in Zurich that hosts concerts of all kinds. The posters advertising them have their own unique and unconventional aesthetic, far removed from the polished atmosphere of fashionable clubs. They are created using a photocopier: the typography, illustrations and patterns are put together by hand and screen-printed. Each poster contains a brief reference to the next in the series.
Palace, a former cinema in St. Gallen that is now a concert venue, stages a wide-ranging programme of events aimed at a variety of audiences. Here, the advertising posters must each work individually while at the same time giving the venue a recognisable identity. Hunger achieves this through a surrealistic use of metaphor, with each poster exploiting the interplay of typography, collages, patterns and ornaments. The posters, which are available for sale, are screen-printed in print runs of 80 using the four-colour CMYK process: an unusual technique for screen printing that is testament to Hunger’s love of experiment.
