This poster created for the “Théâtre des enfants de Lausanne“ (Theater for kids of Lausanne), granted the Swiss Poster Award in 1987.
Among Neumann’s black and white illustrations, this vivid poster reflects his experimentation with dynamic compositions and colors. To reveal a playful and childish aura, Neumann utilizes a collage technique and places the object of a brush at the head of this black figure thus to represent a helmet.
He also implements the visual gestalt of reification, regarding the facial composition of the black figure. Consequently he triggers the viewers' imagination as their mind tries to fill in the gaps and construct, via the geometrical lines, the facial characteristics of this figure.
His choice of simple and clean typography reflects his advocacy of Swiss International Style.
