Emigre Graphics was founded by Rudy VanderLans and Zuzana Licko in 1984. Their work challenged the traditional rules of graphic design, questioning conventional ideas about layout and legibility and making pioneering use of digital technology. Emigre included an alternative-culture graphic-design magazine, a digital type foundry and a music label. This poster promotes an album by the band Fact Twenty Two. Text and images are overlaid with one layer showing through the next and the design is an example of VanderLans's organic approach to layout and composition.
