Most of the Re-Issue’s posters have been sourced from museum and design studio archives, with some being the only remaining copies outside of these archives. The first collection included posters from Hello Me (Till Wiedeck)Bureau Mirko BorscheHelmoHortSimon Roth, and Atlas. For round two, expect works from Côme de BouchonyThe RodinaDaniel Peter and more.

“We begin with our own interests and knowledge of designers around the world who use the poster as a prevalent format in their work,” Hall and Santangelo reflect on selecting and sourcing work for the project. “We also look to poster competitions from around the world that celebrate posters for their message, context and design, and explore from there. We are particularly drawn to posters that have strong content as well as design, that have cultural significance or a physical presence, and avoid those that are purely decorative.”
