La Grande Schmierâge
Buchpublikation La Grande Schmierâge
In the course of graffiti festival La Grande Schmierâge in Ingolstadt, which SCHMELTER BRAND DESIGN co-sponsors and organizes in collaboration with Stadtjugendring Ingolstadt every two years, a lavish book was published. It’s both a documentation of the previous five events and a collection of works created since its opening in 1995.
The book is a chronicle that introduces Ingolstadt’s graffiti scene in more than 300 photos from a “Hall of Fame” point of view. It’s a collection not only of the works, but also the history of their origins and photos of the protagonists in action. The layout is deliberately unobtrusive to allow room for the artworks. When browsing through the book, the graffiti’s strong visual languages and colour combinations provide a very powerful effect. From the outside, the book looks both timelessly pure and dramatic due to its colourful film finishing.
