There is some lovely print and poster work in the portfolio of UK studio Telegramme. If you are a gig poster aficionado there is a healthy dose of inspiration on display.

There is a tongue and cheek kind of a thing happening in the portfolio of David Ryski AKA Talkseek whose father was a firefighter. His love of skateboarding, music and street art apparently diverted him from following in his father’s footsteps.

David D’Andrea’s work harkens back to a simpler and more intricate era of poster design gone by. He takes the time to craft some intricately detailed illustrations that make each poster he creates a genuine piece of art.

We Three Club is the work of Alex and Chris White both educated in the UK with degrees in Fashion and Fine Art respectively. The have a fully loaded arsenal of classic poster work in their portfolio. It’s all oozing a sharp personality that draws influence from psychedelic poster art past, 80s skate graphics and Chicano Folk art with just the right amount of fashion sense.

I gotta say that Landland is quickly becoming one of my favorite poster-makers. Their work just kind of came out of nowhere (at least to me) in the past year or so and everything they release just gets better. It’s genuinely artistic work and it really stands out in the poster scene.

About Landland:
“Landland is a very small graphic design & illustration studio in Minneapolis that was started by Dan Black, Jessica Seamans & Matt Zaun in the spring of 2007. We had all been making things for quite a while before that, but 2007 was when we actually moved into a real studio and built the loft and the walls and a massive printing table, and learned how to install sinks and lights and all of that. Now it’s just Dan & Jes.

The Landland studio doubles as a fully-functional screenprinting shop, mainly focusing on record sleeves, posters and art prints. We make these things with computers and scanners and photocopiers and drawings and fun printing techniques and whatever we need to use to get the job done. We are also about to start publishing some short-run books and a handful of very limited-edition records. Where we live tends to get very cold, so a lot of times the only thing that makes sense is to stay inside and draw tessellation patterns or the names of bands or messed-up billboards or things that you remember from back when it was fun to go outside.”

If you are a poster fanatic like I am then you will certainly appreciate the huge archive of dropdead gorgeous prints created for some of the better bands out on tour by the silkscreening studio Status Serigraph. The prints are extremely reasonably priced too and the designs skills represented are obviously top shelf all the way.

John Vogl is a crazy talented local illustrator based right here in Denver, CO. He has somehow slipped my attention but I recently stumbled across his work and was incredibly impressed by his poster art. He’s got some absolutely fantastic posters for sale at both his Etsy Shop and his Big Cartel store.

Flora Fauna World’s work has been at the center of a few hotbutton creative disputes in the past but despite all of that they still continue to crank out some sincerely kick ass gig posters for some great bands. They have been busy lately and their site has seen a recent update of some excellent new poster work.

Portuguese illustrator/designer Bráulio Amado’s influences are all over the map. He takes an energetic, humerous and eclectic approach to his work that makes for an interesting portfolio browse. I didn’t see comic sans used anywhere though.

Poster designer and illustrator Tyler Stout has still been cranking out the goods lately. I would kill for a copy of his ‘The Thing’ poster. I recently saw a copy of it hanging in the bedroom of Robin Williams character in ‘World’s Greatest Dad’. His recent poster for the Black Keys looks pretty sweet and will no doubt sell out like the rest.

It’s been a really long time since I have said anything about the Iskra Print Collective but in between then and now they have been busy creating some dead sexy gig posters. I would be more than happy to hang anything from their catalog on my wall.
