This black and white illustration summarizes the design expression and character of Hofmann guaranteeing him the Swiss Poster Award in 1961. Its abstract layout creates an ambiguity and curiosity as the viewers are driven by the Visual Gestalt of Continuation revealed by the strong vertical lines (Similarity, Continuity, closure and proximity). Hence, this eye grabbing effect leads to the representation of the violins in a black and white contrast.
