Congratulations to the people who again selected a most ugly poster for the non-happening of oktoberfest 2021. Again it will be available on glasses and maß to buy and I will get one for the collection – but at the same time its nice not to see this poster across town.
oktoberfest 2019 poster selected
usual procedure as every year. the good people of munich narrow the poster selection down to a top 30, and then some learned “judges” decide a winner to go on the posters, maß, tshirts – actually everything! tbh its not a bad design competition to win
Its pretty abstract and would make some nice modern gift wrap – but not sure its poster material for the wiesn.
the oktoberfest poster 2018 selected
while I’ve been busy on a big project at work – the managed to announce the oktoberfest poster for 2018
Nice poster highlighting the blue skies bavaria is known for – but I gotta say I prefer third place.
finally getting the terrace sorted…
if you have visited chez phil since I moved in – the terrace has been nothing I concentrated on. this was the year to get this sorted. New sichtschutz, chairs, lights & plants! (the fresh herbs were great with breakfast this morning)
Its now a great place to unwind after work and people are taking bets if the plants will survive.
crossrail for munich
As much as I am waiting for crossrail to open in London – work has started on building the second tunnel through munich for the sbahn. Known locally as the zweite stammstrecke the new line should be ready by 2026. I really hope munich generates some fantastic new architecture around this line and not just grey boxes!
For those with BBC Iplayer access take a look at their insite into crossrail : The fifteen billion pound railway
the oktoberfest poster 2017 selected
I wrote previously about the voting for the oktoberfest poster. Well the winner has been chosen. I like the new poster. Its clean, simple lines are easy on the eye – and its not overly busy. It also got my vote in the first round.
Now the countdown starts – 216 days until O’zapft is!
the oktoberfest poster 2017
each year the oktoberfest poster is announced and people (including me) criticise the choice of the “experts”. this year the muenchen town council have decided to allow the general public (i.e me and you) to help with the deselection process.
people can vote on their website and it will help take the choice down from 49 posters to the top 30. a jury of experts will then make the final choice. using the general public to narrow down from 49 to 30 is really not that much of an influence on the outcome – but I guess its a start.
the final winner is announced on feb 1st.
