Peter Kjær-Andersen (b. 1964) graduated as an advertising designer from Aller Press in 1983, and now has his own design studio. His field of activity is large and versatile and includes everything from posters and graphic design to industrial design, exhibition design and medal design. One of his best-known posters is the Velbekommen poster made for the Danish Museum of Art and Design's Café in 2002.
Nostalgia on the poster
Peter Kjær-Andersen's posters mainly cultivate the nostalgia and the pictures from the 20s and 30s with their cubist inspirational sources and art deco's elegant, smooth lines. Here it is the atmospheric, but at the same time slightly old-fashioned visuals, which create a new expression through earlier stylistic aids. However, the inspiration is also taken from the French café posters, which use a light stroke to create a subtle mood and a recognizable image.
