Today it’s National Poetry Day here in Holland. It’s the start of a week full of poetry. A lot of activities are organized and the media will be more poetic than usual. So today I found this project about, you guessed right, poetry! Pentagram Design is studio behind these pieces of art that are created for the Poetry Foundation.
Pentragram Design: The Poetry Foundation is an independent literary organization with the mission to celebrate its namesake form and raise it to a more visible and influential position in our culture, chiefly through Poetry magazine, published since 1912. Pentagram developed a brand identity for the Foundation, including a new design for the publication, that reinforces it as a vital platform and helps attract the attention of new audiences.
One of the oldest and most innovative literary forms, poetry can be simple or complex, and is also peculiarly visual: The way the words of a poem are arranged on a page has an effect on how they are read, and the “design” of verse conveys the underlying structure of set forms like the haiku, the limerick and the sonnet, which in turn provide the basis for endless variations. Typography is also hugely significant to poetry, and the medium has inspired radical experiments in type for centuries.
