Stencils are still one of our favourite techniques, as they provide a quick-and-dirty way to produce visuals. Next to that, they also guarantee a nice balance between full control and manual irregularity. For this year’s BuitenBios edition, the one and only open-air cinema on the rooftop of our Amsterdam studio building, we created all posters by hand (😅) with a stencil.
The posters of the previous BuitenBios edition in 2020 were the starting point for a new stencil typeface, which eventually became Plakato, a set of static & dynamic display fonts. This year, we made the most of the stencil technique, and made each poster unique. The posters meanwhile hang on the windows of shopkeepers in Amsterdam-Oost, announcing a very nice event.
During the next two weeks, there will be four evenings to enjoy a film in the open air at a special location. On 1, 2, 8 & 9 September, the roof will be opened to the public. There is a limited number of tickets available, so make sure you reserve in time if you want to be there. Tickets and info at Tugela85.
