Supergraphics are just as they sound: really large graphics. Usually abstract and environmental, these colourful designs were popular in the 70s and are still used to this day. Often these images and typography are used to make wayfinding and signage more exciting.
The Dutch design team Haas & Hahn are an excellent example of artists employing supergraphics today. Their full names are Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn and they started working together on large environmental artwork in 2005. They have worked all over the world, with one of their most notable series being done between 2007 and 2010 focusing on the slums (favelas) of Rio de Janeiro.
What I really appreciate about the pair is their passion for their work: their goal is to bring hope, charm, excitement and joy to spaces that may otherwise be drab and dissolve into the cityscape. They see their art as catalyst for social change, creativity and activism and they originally started the favelas project to break stereotypes about the people living there.
