This poster announces the LightCyle competition. hosted by lighting design consultancy Electrolight, that is part of the 2009 State of Design Festival in Melbourne, Australia. Lightcycle challenges participants to “create a light fixture that represents environmental sustainability” by using 1 meter (3 feet) of LED strip. Büro North created a rather luminous poster with a custom LED-inspired typeface for the competition. The poster features a good, old fashioned split fountain with three colors that serves as a background for a hardcore pass of black that lets the gradient seep right through.
