The Quay Brothers are twin filmmakers and artists, best known for their stop-motion puppet animation. The 2013 MoMA retrospective of their work (titled Quay Brothers: On Deciphering the Pharmacist’s Prescription for Lip-Reading Puppets) highlighted a wide range of films, drawings, and installations, including a series of intricate dioramas and sets. Their aesthetic is surreal, elaborately realized, and a little bit strange.
Using a custom typeface, the exhibition identity and graphics needed to be both expressive and somewhat directional, since the show was divided into two parts across the museum. Using an old IKEA picture frame, the advertising campaign was a small nod to the brothers’ unusual dioramas.
