Concert Posters.

We all like a little inspiration sometimes, and we all need some sometimes too. I like browsing concert posters or “informational art” as I like to call it. Pretty much anything goes in the world of poster art, so you never know what to expect (which is great) and it’s an area of the art/design world that is very rich on the visual side, not to mention the creative type treatments. Go to Bittbox.

Web designers typically turn to other websites for design inspiration, but sometimes it is good to look at other mediums to get a different perspective on design.

Create a 1950s poster.

Design and printing processes back in the fifties were a lot different from what it is today. Printed media had a different overall quality as a result. PotatoProject will show you how to mimic the look of some posters from the 1950s.
