The poster advertises the dedication of several sites at the University of Hartford. Paul Rand overlaps squares in saturated colors below the text. The poster is minimal in detail, yet, also, is evocative of the rising geometric silhouettes of buildings. Additionally, abstraction is often associated with innovation and modernism. Through this design, Rand seems to suggest that the Dedication ceremony is the beginning of a new and vibrant era.
