Redback Graphix will bowl readers over with color and edgy social comment. From 1979 to 1994, the Australian design and screenprinting studio Redback Graphix produced posters that combined witty graphics with eye-watering colors to give voice to a raft of pressing social issues — from AIDS awareness and alcohol abuse to the promotion of local films and music gigs. Originally designed for the street, these posters are now considered icons of an era and are highly sought after. Anna Zagala’s text provides an insight into why these posters continue to excite and inspire a new generation.
