Posters to advertise a one-day conference with speakers Peter Saville, Ami Hasan and Mauro Pastore: a mighty trio that inspired the title Syzygy (astronomy terminology for the alignment of three celestial objects). The idea parallels with the three design and advertising stars who headline the event. After the ‘eclipse’ of star speakers, the winners of the ADC*E awards would shine the day after. Three different colours (red, green, blue) represent different types of stars. To emphasise the metaphor of the eclipse we glued a black shiny vinyl on top of each star, recreating an eclipse with paper. With Richard Sarson. See also Identities, Miscellaneous
