This seems to be quite like the Beethoven design from the 50′s

He is intentionally referencing the famous Brockmann Beethoven poster (note the title “Josef Müller-Bockwurst”)

Hello, thanks for the mention. Here is the story behind the print.

Josef Müller-Brockmann influenced me in the way i experience graphic design today. Since he was born in Rapperswil, Switzerland, he must have enjoyed the Swiss Bockwurst – a fat meat sausage. It is often served on a bed of lettuce with onion, tomato, egg & dressing.

By joining the 2 very forces of Switzerland, the swiss bockwurst and the Josef Müller-Brockmann, you cannot avoid ending up with something very beautiful and unique.

The result is this screenprint. The grid is based on the original Zurich Tonhalle Concert Poster, from 1954.

Sausage Modernism.
