100 years of Otl Aicher: win an exclusive pictogram poster


Otto "Otl" Aicher (1922 - 1991) was one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Most of you will immediately think of his iconic pictograms for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. In the 1970s he designed ERCO's corporate design – the logo, typography and colour coding are, still today, an integral part of the visual communication. Otl Aicher would have turned 100 on 13th May 2022. On the occasion of his birthday we are raffling rare, original pictogram posters from the ERCO archives, which have become highly popular collector's items. Take your chance and win one of 20 exclusive copies.
