This visually-stunning set of posters was created by designer and illustrator, Chris LaBrooy. Designed in conjunction with M&C Saatchi in London, the purpose of these posters is to convey upcoming travel fare charges on the London rail, tube and bus networks.

I just love the way that the 3D typography blends right into the vehicles, which is the whole point of the designs in the first place. Wouldn’t it be cool if actual working models of these travelled around the city, though?

Creative, Redesigned Movie Posters

There are few design challenges more complex, interesting and creative than designing a movie poster. There are so many different angles, styles and design decisions to make that it’s incredibly difficult to start, but can be remarkably rewarding. This is especially true for designers who are used to working with constraints. If you choose to create your own unsolicited movie poster design for one of your favourite films, you won’t have a boss giving you design feedback or a client giving you a brief of how they want it to look – you have complete creative control. This is where it can be challenging – when you start with a blank canvas, you could go in absolutely any direction.

A Showcase of Beautifully Designed Gig Posters

Designing a gig poster is one of the most creatively challenging types of commercial design. There is good reason for this. Posters advertising events have been around for as long as writing has been, but poster design really blossomed in the late nineteenth century when chromolithography allowed posters to be printed with vivid, full-colour images. The technology intrigued artists including Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Jules Chéret, who came to be considered the father of advertising placards.

That fine art tradition was still going strong when gig posters became popular in the 1960s, and with the modern rise of indie bands as well as cheaper and easier printing techniques, designing gig posters has become even more prestigious.
