Wicked Graphic Design by Alexandra Turban

We've seen some great artists here along the years, and from time to time we get to find an artist that really shines. Graphic design is no easy game, even more when you're promoting something. Alexandra Turban, a German designer has a super sweet set of posters. Here you can see a bunch of her pieces. I really love these because they're so fresh and super beautiful. If I ever see a poster like these in the streets it would definitely have my attention and appreciation. For more of these, please visit her portfolio at Behance! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers! ;)

Wicked Illustrated Gig Posters

I think it's really cool when bands ask artists to come up with cool gig posters! I've known some of these artists for some time now and it's amazing to check them after a while and see that they've done pieces for bands such as The Black Keys and Flight of the Conchords. So I've searched for more illustrated gig posters and found these, which are truly awesome! I wonder if any of you have got your own gig posters! If so, share it with us, because we'd love to see it. Also, you should really check these artists' pages simply by clicking each image. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers! ;) Tom Whalen Mike Mahle Ben Basso Melita Curphy Aubry Cohen Rui Ricardo Becky Dreistadt Tom Whalen Mark Hodgkinson Bryce Louw Dave Perillo Christopher Lee Teagle Mark Rehkopf Sean Causley Benjamin Estrada Nimbus2005 Jimmy the Exploder
