No Smoking Bernhard | Poster

A couple of weeks ago, the Lebanese government issued a law prohibiting smoking in closed public spaces.
I heard alot of complaints about this, and most importantly about the no smoking international sign - being too formal, standard, serious, dull...... which brought me to design the poster below. If you're a designer, you've probably guessed it right: The prohibition sign in this poster is a subversion of Lucian Bernhard's abstraction in his work for Manoli cigarettes. You can check out some of his posters for Manoli and Novelta cigarettes here.  Feel free to download, print, etc, in high res: link1, link2

Sorry Bernhard, smoking is not allowed!

 just for fun:
