I’m attracted to poster art with striking graphics and motifs.
I recently designed a “holiday” poster series as a thematic modern take on vintage travel posters. I like to imagine them inspiring someone to go on, or to remember, such adventures as a classic cross-country American road trip, a romantic honeymoon in Paris, days spent strolling through aromatic spice markets of Morocco, or maybe a sun-baked beach stay in Cozumel.
I see the butterflies – the thread that ties all the designs in the series together – as symbolic of not just the liberation found in flight and travel, but also of the transformative power of travel experiences.
