It’s always inspiring to come across something that has to do with design. This is not only true from a designer’s point of view, but also for anyone who wants to focus on something else for a brief moment. You don’t have to have a design assignment in order to derive inspiration from design. That is a huge misconception that we here at Bit Rebels would really like to dismiss. You can get so much from a picture beyond just the design aspect of it. There is also the emotional, creative and overall idea aspects of it. It’s a great way to refuel your energy when the tank is empty, and your brain feels like a stomped Oreo cookie.
Take these fantastic superhero posters for example. Not only are they truly well done, they are also as deco art as you can possibly make them. All these are jumbled together into some seriously inspiring visuals that you can either breakdown into designer skills, or just use to get a few interesting ideas for your next app for example. It’s all there if you look at it from the right perspective. The designer, Greg Guillemin, clearly knows his deco art and you can tell that he spent a lot of time on them.
I get a very distinct old school Batman feel when I look at all of these. I’m not referring to the movies or anything like that. I mean the comics. Some are truly mesmerizing, and they push the superhero concept just a little bit further than we are used to seeing. Wouldn’t it be cool if someone decided to make a movie in a deco art kind of style with some of the superheroes we are used to seeing on the movie screens these days? That would be epic! After all, Sin City has its very own feel, and considering Batman looked that way (the deco way that is), it would be cool to see some actors get some kind of makeup to look like they did in the first Batman comics. If anything, that would be EPIC!
You can of course get these as prints to put up on your office wall or just in your room. They are all priced around $18 and would make any room quite… superheroish.
