When I first stumbled across these guys’ posters a few years back, I was instantly blown away. Their one of a kind style is unlike the majority of other poster art out there. Their collage style proves that strict boundaries don’t need to be adhered to in order to produce consistent, quality work. Quoted from their own bio: ‘They will break your heart and drink your blood’.
I love screenprints, but I also like working on limited runs of artwork. Intergalactic Fly are poster prints of an original painting that I did on used metal plates, printed, then reworked over with acrylic spray paint.

This past Saturday marked the 50th anniversary of Ernest Hemingway’s passing. To commemorate Hemingway’s life, 1000 Memories screenprinted a handsomely designed poster called Live the Hemingway.

Scott Hansen is one of my favorite designers right now. His work is super fresh, yet an ode to vintage aesthetic, without ever being over the top or corny. Check out his daily musings and peep some of his amazing prints which are for sale.
After the terrible earthquake and tsunami on March 11, and the devastating destruction it caused in Japan, many graphic designers and creatives felt obligated to do something to help in their own unique way. This Tumblr contains a collection of artwork made in the hope of creating attention and raising money for Japan. It is open for submissions.
Silvio Berlusconi, the Prime Minister of Italy, didn’t receive much applause for his attempt to cut down the freedom of press with the so-called ‘gag law‘ last year. As a consequence, a great number of Italian journalists decided to fall silent on July 9 to protest. The measure was accompanied with this newspaper art, that [...]
Victor Hertz is a Swedish freelance photographer and graphic designer with a passion for film. He has come up with a number of cool minimalist movie posters based on pictograms, that I find really inspiring. [You can now buy these posters!]
