Poster design gives a fantastic canvas for creativity. Like web designs, posters offer great scope for creativity and innovative graphic design. Posters are often created for DJs, events, nightclubs and other interesting subjects that lend themselves well to creative design work. This article is aimed to provide you with some great examples of inspiring poster design and creative graphic design in general.
In addition to the designs below, and focusing on the topic of creativity, we thought we’d share a piece of writing from young Sydney designer (Sasha Zubac) on what creativity means to him:
Creativity killed the Design Star:
“Creativity, the pulsating orb of light that resides in the back of a designer’s mind feeding them with vision, innovation and contagious ideas. It puts reins on a wildly running imagination, giving it direction and production; making thought reality.
The degree of thought and process put into a design is what really sets it apart from the rest of the crowd. You could say that a designer’s purpose is to ignite and set off its audiences’ imaginations into a wild running frenzy.
Although, as we all know some ideas come at the click of one’s fingers, while others play a desperate game of hide and seek in the back of our minds.
Inspiration can work like the electrodes of a defibrillator, shocking and bringing back to life a once dying idea. The flow of creation can bring an evolution of thought and imagination, superseding anything concocted beforehand.”
