Ib Antoni

23.4.1929 – 1.9.1973

Ib Antoni originally wanted to be an architect, but could not afford the training, so he began his career as a draughtsman with an apprenticeship at Buchtrup's Cliché Factory in Aarhus. He moved to Copenhagen in 1951 and became a freelance draughtsman.

Ib Antoni later became an extremely productive poster artist, and during his lifetime he designed about 300 posters.

He designed a large number of posters for the Danish Co-op, Politiken, the Copenhagen tourist association, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and several companies from abroad.

Ib Antoni’s posters are colourful, with characteristically simple, playful and strongly personal lines. Humour plays an important part in his posters.
