A graphic design inspiration showcase presenting event posters and magazine covers with an unique art direction that will make your day.
Last week I’ve put together the first Graphic design inspiration post. This week we will focus on posters and magazine covers. Why? Because these graphic design environments have grate potential and just because I found some grate examples to present!
I chose the following examples for their unique way of presenting that specific event. For the way they chose to communicate. From using negative space to get you focused on the subject, to using the typography to add more value and not to add that extra information that nobody reads anyway. For the way the layout is set and takes specific elements from a culture (Japanese sword or the russian doll Matryoshka) and design the poster around it.
Just well crafted and inspiring pieces of information that deliver and make you want more.
I hope you will enjoy this showcase and get inspired.
Two violins and a black bow on a white background that create a human figure. How cool is that? What better way to advertise a symphonic music festival? There is no need for too many words as the visuals speak for themselves. A perfect example on how to use negative space.
These 3 campaign posters where the first I chose for this showcase. The way the models pose, the playfulness of the type, the little white and black balls just scream at you to move. Even the models are in movement and really expressive!
A jazz and blues event that takes place in a winery. How do we present one without eclipsing the other? Pure creative playfulness right here! It looks so natural. The shape of a saxophone created with wine while pored in a glass. If everyone would design this type of posters, I probably would not need glasses, hahaha.
Another grate example on how to use the negative space in your favor. One can help others.
Using the Matryoshka doll, that has drawn on it a singing soprana, to advertise a russian opera festival.
Japanese sword but with a blade made of film, advertising a japanese movie festival. Not only that, but the angle of the “sword” and how the type is set makes it look really interesting.
