Forensics: The anatomy of crime

C0112192 Forensics exhibition campaign print mater

‘Forensics: The anatomy of crime’ was an exhibition at Wellcome Collection that explored the history, science and art of forensic medicine. Travelling from crime scene to courtroom, across centuries and continents, it explored the specialisms of those involved in the delicate processes of collecting, analysing and presenting medical evidence. 

The typographic concept draws from the work of Alphonse Bertillon, whose ‘God’s eye view’ brought methodological rigour to the new possibilities offered by photography. Each plane of letterforms allude to the enlightened moment when evidence becomes clear and concrete. 

A signifier of human decay, the green bottle fly provides a beautiful and ugly centrepiece to the advertising campaign.

  1. Dear Marianne/ Marianne Dear,

    I went to see the exhibition because I fell in love with your design for the poster. And when I went to the exhibition I fell in love with your design for the pamphlet/guide.
    The exhibition was great too … But honestly, your design work was incredible! I wanted to buy a poster afterwards, but sadly they weren’t selling them. Any chance they are selling off left-overs at some point?

    Thanks,
    Emily

    1. Hello Emily,
      Thank you that’s nice to hear, and I’m pleased you liked the show.

      We aren’t selling the posters but you can buy a print of the fly in the Wellcome Shop. I will send this email on to our retail team and perhaps they will think more about selling posters in the future.

      Marianne
