Layout | Laser cut proverbs

This student project achieves a lovely effect in these posters by laser cutting and layering paper. The hand drawn typography is excellent. Click here to view the original sketches and angled views that show the depth achieved.

Layout | Newcastle Festival of Dance Posters

I really like this poster series for the Newcastle Festival of Dance by Amy Rodchester. Polygon blocks were created at varying heights and arranged in a chessboard type pattern and topped by images of dancing feet. The arrangement then was photographed giving a slightly uneven pattern. The black and white photos of old fashioned shoes and the pastel tones give a nice vintage touch to what would otherwise be a very modern poster.

Layout | Vintage Movie Posters worth a bit of money

The Guardian has a collection of the 10 most expensive movie posters. Expensive not in production, but in the value of the physical poster to a collector. Most of these are great examples of vintage horror movie illustrations, but also include the beautiful Metropolis design. I love the custom type on these posters, and there are some great compositions and perspectives.

Layout | Minimalist Star Wars Posters

I love these minimalist Star Wars posters by Travis English. Check out his tumblr site for more posters such as Dr Who and Harry Potter. Just like the movies, the posters for the original trilogy are probably the best. The posters use simple silhouette illustrations of key locations and protagonists for each film. View other nice Star Wars posters here, here and here.

Layout | Swissted punk posters in the Swiss style

Swissted is a great project by Mike Joyce, combining two of his great loves; punk rock and Swiss modernism. The result are modern punk, rock and indie posters produced in the sixties Swiss style using Akzidenz Grotesk. Here are some of my favourites, there are plenty more on the Swissted site. It would be great to see the original poster to compare style and see whether the Swissted design is an abstraction of the original, or completely different.

A great Twitter inspired poster for the excellent Bon Iver. I love the custom high contrast western wood type font.
