Max Bill: Timeline + Poster

Max Bill was a Swiss architect, artist, painter, typeface designer, industrial designer and graphic designer. This project is composed by two parts, both about the Swiss master.
The first part is a timeline that goes from Bill's birth to his death. It shows the events in his life with a focus on what was surrounding him, in particular are reported: vanguards, exhibitions, his formation, his commitments, postmodernism, relevant people around him, his professions and finally historical facts. Each of these categories is recognizable in the timeline with the colour assigned to it.
The second part is a poster that has to resume the graphic style of Max Bill (he went through different styles during his life, so it has been chosen just a particular moment to take inspiration from).
Both the artefacts are made following Bill's style guides.
