AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Artists) of Atlanta asked brand designer and art director Russell Shaw to contribute a promotional artwork for the second annual poster show. With the theme of “Art Director’s Cut II,” they would focus on the film- and movie-inspired poster designs contributed by designers All the proceeds from the event would towards AIGA's annual programming. Russell took this genuine approach with paper cutout designs and graphic design. The result is just spectacular. Don't you agree? Russell Shaw is a brand designer and art director based in San Francisco, CA, USA. He works mainly in graphic design, branding and illustration; for more of his work please check out his Behance. I created the call for entries and promotional artwork by hand out of paper and found objects. The title “Art Director’s Cut” is an obvious play on the film industry, but seemed like a good opportunity to explore paper cutout designs of theatre signs and marquees on a messy, artist’s desk backdrop – replete with a nod to the quintessential movie snack: popcorn, which I used to create three-dimensional lettering for the event’s main title. The entire piece was assembled in real life and photographed from above to create the final visual communication in portrait and landscape orientation.

This poster series has a lot of great elements that we love on Abduzeedo, first of all we’ve always been fan of everything related with the word: neon. Posters always have been one of our first love of design way before everything went digital with UI, UX, Interfaces and etc. Let’s take a closer look at the work of Tarek Okbir who is a graphic designer currently based Liège, Belgium. Other than focusing his work on UI/UX and Interface design, Tarek created his amazing poster series about very popular artists.

There is nothing more impressive than challenging yourself to create/make every single day. We are busy people with our lives, hobbies, etc and finding personal time to actually create needs lots of discipline and willingness to achieve. With those 365 days project, you have to commit for create 365 times, it’s not a small number. Let’s take a look at this poster series by Vasjen Katro entitled: Baugasm. Vasjen is a visual designer and creative director based in Tirana, Albania. This series is filled with vibrant colours, 3D, typography treatments, shapes and more. It is quite inspiring to follow his path, you should definitely follow him too. I challenged myself to design one poster every day for one year.

One of the reasons I got to design was because of posters, especially movie posters. It was part of my childhood going to the movies and while waiting checking the posters of the upcoming movies. I see a lot of that style for poster design coming back now because the 80s are again very trendy, the new Netflix show Stranger Things is a great example. For this post however, I don't want to talk about that style of poster but my favorite one nowadays, minimalist poster design and Xavier Esclusa Trias has quite a few good ones on his Behance portfolio. Xavier is an art director from Barcelona, Spain and his portfolio is filled with excellent posters, of all sorts of styles. They are quite good, but my favorites were the ones that he played with simple lines and colors to produce quite beautiful examples. They are heavily Swiss style or International Style inspired, that's the reason I love them and the reason I am sharing some of them here with you on this post. The International Typographic Style, also known as the Swiss Style, is a graphic design style that emerged in Russia, the Netherlands and Germany in the 1920s, and was made famous as it was developed by designers in Switzerland during the 1950s... It emphasizes cleanliness, readability and objectivity... - Wikipedia Minimalist Poster Design examples About Xavier Esclusa Educated in Barcelona as a Graphic Designer, Photographer, Community Manager and Multimedia Artist.

Posters are always a great outlet for designers giving us a canvas with fixed dimensions to explore different ideas, styles and forms. The purpose, of course ,is communication. Fabian Fohrer explores some really cool ideas on a series of black and white posters for a college project. I love how simple and bold some of them are, especially with the usage of just black and white. This is a selection of b/w posters arose the last year. Some are the result of university projects, some are personal works. All KD—Lounge posters (4/7/8/9/12) use our Moderat typeface. Fabian Fohrer is a graphic design student based in Constance, Germany, with a passion for branding, graphic design and typography. For more information check out http://www.fabianfohrer.com/
2015 has been a great year so far for cinephiles everywhere, but there are still some great movies to come that will be the icing of this delicious cake. One of the greatest assets of a movie is its promotional poster. A great movie might have a horrible poster, and the opposite may be true: a horrible movie might have a great poster. So I thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at some of the coolest movie posters from 2015. I know some of these are not official posters, but fan-made, but some are so good that I've made some exceptions. Tell us, have you seen many movie posters these years? What's your favorite? What posters you'd've wanted to see here? I'm a big fan of the Martian's and Star Wars' posters! I hope you enjoy this selection. Also, for nearly every poster released this year, visit IMP Awards! Cheers! ;)
Dan Matutina strikes again with another awesome project where he illustrates for the Qualcomm Posters of the FIA Formula E Championship 2014-2015.

I find really great when an artist does super nice pieces based on movies. Sometimes we get to see alternative movie posters that, if not equally good to the originals, might actually be better.

These are beautiful, but a very brief selection... for more of them, please visit Tracie's personal portfolio. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
