LE CAMBRIOLEUR    Exhibition Identity & Guide

I chose to design a gallery exhibition of the work of A.M. Cassandre, a designer who once said that a good designer was like a burglar with a crowbar, jimmying his way into viewers’ minds. ‘Le Cambrioleur’ is French for ‘the burglar,’ and the exhibition, which focuses on Cassandre’s work in poster advertising, is set in his birthplace of Kharkov, Ukraine, a growing modern city. The lock motif continues throughout the guide and extends to a pair of promotional products for the exhibition: Écluse (lock) wine and an opener, Clé (key).
