Max Huber, one of my favourite designers, created series of advertising posters in 1949 for classic Italian hat makers Borsalino, inventor of the fedora. I emulated his bold, overlapping colours, blending and creating new from old.
About the designer
Jovanna Mendes de Souza was born in Brazil, and brought up in Sweden. She came to London to study design at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art, graduating with an MA in Graphic and Communication Design. She is inspired by a huge range of influences, including Victorian inventions, layering different styles, and the work of design luminaries like Max Huber and Aubrey Beardsley.
