OK, most of the official graphic output from Expo 86 graphics was pretty disappointing, but happily there were some exceptions. Case in point, this poster designed by Fernando Medina for the Canadian National Railway Pavilion. That type treatment plays so beautifully off of the simple graphic elements below and there’s a great sense of movement without relying on any of the usual tricks (exaggerated italics, motion blur, etc.) or sacrificing the legibility.
