    Purely typographic poster promoting a 1969 production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s opera, Utopia, Limited; or, The Flowers of Progress, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Kresge Auditorium.

    As with many examples of the International Typographic Style, the design uses a simple, structured composition of Helvetica with plenty of negative space. Interior boundaries and extenders in the tight-not-touching titling establish a grid for the smaller informational text below.
