Minimalism, abstraction and a clever design combine perfectly in this week's top flier. There's not a lot going on here, but what little there is goes a long way.
The cascading boxes are the key to the whole thing. If you were to scrub the text off this, leaving just the twist of colored shapes, we could totally see this hanging on the wall in the lair of some '70s movie reclusive rocker, supervillain or swingers club. It has that quality of groovy, slightly self-indulgent pop art we associate with the period, meaning it would look totally at home behind a guy wearing some white, hip-hugging bell bottoms.
The placement of the boxes and text works well to draw the eye down the page, from one artists to the next, finally depositing one's attention at the time, date and place info at the bottom. It's bright enough to get your attention and simple enough to read when drunk -- always a winning combination in the flier world.
