Exhibition Poster Series for Centrepoint Spacesuit Collection 18

Did you get a chance to watch the first look at Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969 in the movie: "First Man". I thought this would be the perfect introduction for our feature of an Exhibition Poster Series for Centrepoint Spacesuit Collection 18. It's a collaboration between many talented artists including Ryan Atkinson, James Elgie, Rijin Kunnath and RODAS ®. Imagine the conventional spacesuit into a fashion collection, what do you think? While the likes of Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton are being inspired by space — Centrepoint created a spacesuit collection inspired by earth’s trends. What will you wear to space? #representearth #spaceisthenewblack Credits Ryan Atkinson James Elgie Rijin Kunnath RODAS ® More Links View the full project on Behance Illustration

Typography Explorations for Posters by Fatih Hardal 

Typography Explorations for Posters by Fatih Hardal 

Fatih Hardal shared a really cool personal project on his Behance profile. The idea was to create posters where the main goal was to experiment with typography with colors, textures and simple effects like blur and burn effects. The result is a series of quite stylish posters that are definitely worth checking out. As of March 1, I started the typographic poster series. I wanted to create a series that included monochrome and various colors. At the same time, I was on my personal Instagram account. I am happy to share here also because this interaction is positive. I hope you will like it. Typography Posters For more information check out: Instagram Facebook Twitter LinkedIn  

Awesome Illustration for Movie Posters by Rafal Rola

Awesome Illustration for Movie Posters by Rafal Rola

Rafał Rola, a super prolific designer from Lublin, Poland shared an incredible post on Behance sharing some beautiful posters created in 2017. The posters are for movies like Blade Runner 2049, Justice League, Star Wars Last Jedi, Ghost in the Shell, War for the Plane of the Apes, Wonder Woman and many other super popular movies and TV shows in 2017. The highlight though, is the style. They all feel like oil and watercolor painted but it was all done digitally with Adobe Sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop. For me it's always awesome to see something that feels unique and fresh, moving a bit away from the minimalism or highly detailed vector illustration. I think it's a good way to bring a bit more variety to ABDZ in 2018.  Make sure to check out Rafal Rola's website for a full portfolio and some more awesomeness in illustration and design at http://www.rafalrola.pl/ Posters & Illustration

Poster Event & Graphic Design: Russell Shaw AIGA Atlanta 2017 Poster Show

Poster Event & Graphic Design: Russell Shaw AIGA Atlanta 2017 Poster Show

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.   Check out Russell Shaw's site: russellshawdesign.com Follow Russell's work on Behance

Collection of Minimalist Poster Design

Collection of Minimalist Poster Design

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. Has worked in Ibiza and Brazil in different advertising agencies, and studies of graphic design. At this moment he is established in Vic (Barcelona), works as an Art director of http://www.twopots-design.com, his own company, where he enjoys creating for his clients.

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.

15 Awesome Movie Posters from 2015

15 Awesome Movie Posters from 2015

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! ;)
