I recently discovered these fantastic WPA-inspired posters designed by the Anderson Design Group‘s Joel Anderson and Andy Gregg for their Art & Soul of America collection.
Coincidentally, I also finally got around to watching Stephen Fry in America a couple weeks ago, which I highly recommend if you haven’t seen it already. Perhaps that’s why these posters resonate so much with me. Either way, I think the printmaking-influenced illustrations, vintage typography, and subtle aging effects perfectly capture the American aesthetic of the early 20th Century.
We created these posters for our new collection of classic American travel posters. Created to look like vintage prints from the early to mid-1900s, the series celebrates our cities and national parks. In addition to colors and well-crafted lettering, choosing dramatic perspectives adds to the grand travel era vibe of these prints.
