De Kring Society is a private association founded in 1922 by Amsterdam cultural elite. I was asked by one of their member, Jim Driesen, to design a poster for a party called Knetterlink.
The challenge was to design an iconic poster that 'speaks' loud enough to appeal to a younger target audience without excluding the actual members of The Kring Society. For this, I choose a traditional approach with a handmade drawing and colors that are strong, without being overwhelming. "Knetterlinks" can be used as a slang to describe something super dangerous, but is also a term used in dutch politics to describe "super left party". My intention was to keep the joke subtle by portraying a left-wing Dutch politician with a '70s gangster appearance. What I love about this work is the simple concept behind it that easily allowed me to create an infinite version of it.
