Kónya, Zoltán

1891 - ?

Zoltán Kónya’s early style derives from the Art Nouveau drawing style of the 1910s: it is charming and colorful.

He uses decorative typography, and clear, flat shapes. The style of the German Sachplakat also put a great influence on him; some of his posters only show the image of the product in the center of the composition (such as the posters of Braun).

He preferred using strong colours and creating compact symbols. His designs are often humorous and narrative. He designed posters for the famous tobacco brand, Modiano: these designs also involve caricaturist elements.                                                                                                                                                   .
