Günther Kieser is one of Germany’s most important graphic designers—he was the go-to man for music posters in the 1960s, from Jimi Hendrix to the Grateful Dead and The Who. The retired, 86-year-old designer has never had a retrospective, until now. “Kieser, Posters” recently opened at the Bröhan Museum in Berlin and runs until July 23, 2017. #posters #posterdesign #designinspiration
