GigPosters – F –

Well…. it’s that time of week again ladies and gents! Here’s the next installment of gigposters from me, straight to your pretty little eyeballs. There was a surprising number of completely gorgeous posters in the F section, maybe I should change my name to something starting with F so that the likelihood I’ll produce something eye-wateringly good will go through the roof.
Maybe not.

FREEDM_FLYER_invite shepard_fairey
only has a handful of posters up  but the ones he does have are pretty great. Russian Constructivism, anyone? Yikes that’s cool.

Shaun Flynn

He only has one, but the one he’s got is great. I love the colors and the movement he’s created with lines.

I like the retro feel he has through all of his posters.
pablo_font2
I really love the textures, shapes and colors he’s using in this particular poster.

Nevin Flinchbaugh

This is one of my favorite posters of all time. The fingers as little people and the typography in the shape of a hand! Ahhh it’s too good…

Is just getting started, but there’s a definite clean feeling that he carries through each of his posters that makes him one of my instant favorites. He has great colors and a really nice perspective on what it is to be a gigposter.

luca_farinella

Luca Farinella

I really like this poster. He only has two posters, but the way he’s divided this illustration of a fist and the lines radiating off with information is really nice.

Ok, I’m going to warn you now… there’s a rain/umbrella theme to this post. For some reason three different artists in the F section have used this theme in their posters whereas none of the other artists so far have. I love the idea that the same subject can be used and yet evoke totally different emotions.

I have a definite thing for posters that use three or four layered colors to create a 3d-without-the-3d-glasses look and this one is no exception. This guy is prolific, but this is my favorite poster of his.

How can you not totally dig this guy’s name!? Especially when you see how gorgeous his posters are. I don’t love all of them, but I absolutely love the ones I do. Little details like information in an eyebrow, his use of big, graphic lettering, and the quirky subject matter make these posters for me. Oh man, don’t stop now James Flames, these are so good!

I love just about every poster they have on gigposter. The deer, however, are my favorite. The line quality and the negative vs. positive space blows me away. They have a great eye for fonts in that they suit whatever the rest of the poster is up to. They have a ton of posters up and it’s worth taking a gander.

I love this particular illustration, not as a poster, but as a little drawing. The line work is so great!

francoise_massacre

Francoise Massacre

There are some interesting moments in Francoise Massacre’s posters. This hand is an example of neat typography, cool illustration and interesting color. Nice job Francoise.

I can’t get over how sweet this little bear is. Their color work is really nice and the themes for their posters lend a sweet, innocence to these illustrations.

I really like these posters. The scale, color and themes jive together in a super aesthetically pleasing way. How can you not love something like a fabric, flower suit!?
fast_friends_inc4 fast_friends_inc3 fast_friends_inc2 fast_friends_inc
Every single one of these posters tickles me pink! These make me so giddy that I don’t know where to look, I would definitely tear these off of whatever lamp post I saw them on and plaster my walls with their zany energy. Yes, I’m talking to you donky-unicornman with a giant bow tied to your neck!
fanfare_parade2 fanfare_parade
I like their more recent work. All the detail twisting around on the Tallest Trees poster and the textures on Tommy and the Whale caught my eye and kept it cruising around.

Fake French

Is zany like Fast Friends Inc. but in a quieter, stranger way. There are lots of lovely colored intestines happening, and some interesting typography chopping around on their posters. I like.

fageta_87 fageta_51
There are only two posters, but I love both of them for their creative typography. This is obviously the early days for Fageta, but I like where it’s going.

I want to hang their light bulb poster on my room and trace my finger down each string in a sort of compulsive ritual every morning when I wake up. There’s something about the weight of the lines, the subject and those great light bulbs that makes me smile.

estelle_flores

Estelle Flores

I really love the colors and shapes she’s chosen for her posters.

Wow, what a name. These posters knock my socks off. The Devotchka poster caught my eye first and I had to see more of his work after that. I love Devotchka and that poster totally communicates their music. Plus, those Willy Nelson brades are so great! I didn’t even have to read the name to get that it was Willy. Talk about brand recognition!

Yeah yeah, I love bunnies, and yes this one is painting red hair on a dude with a cigar. ‘Nuff said.

bartek_felczak1

Bartek Felczak

Has some very sweet little illustrations. I don’t think his style is quite formed all the way yet, but it’s heading somewhere soft and pretty.

GigPosters – E –

Phew! There were only two pages (instead of the usual five or so) in the “E” section of designers on gigposters this week. Again, I say “Phew” to you.

traci_edwardstraci_edwards2
Has a great range of subjects for her posters. There are birds, people, hearts being filled up with a gas pump… I like it when there’s a broad range but a consistent feeling tying them together.

rogalev_egor

Egor Rogalev

He only has this single poster, but it’s a really great illustration. I can’t wait to see what else he’ll put up.

mathew_egan

Mathew Egan

I know this is a little different from what I usually pick, but the detail in the border and illustration makes this poster. His style isn’t quite my flavor, but his other posters have something in their illustration that caught my attention.

Most of their work is for this RaRaRiot band and I love all of those posters. The contrast between the sweet illustration of the diver and the tragic ending makes me smile all goofily and covet this poster.

el_jefe_design2Print

El Jefe

With a name like El Jefe, how can you not have AWESOME posters? I mean really, come on. It’s a good thing that he does then, isn’t it? Most of his work is the softer, children’s story book sort of illustration but then he throws in something dark like the Ladytron poster and it just sweetens the deal. Nice job El Jefe… keep rocking that name.

I really really love the Paramore poster. I like her most recent style, but I can totally leave her earlier work. There’s something sweeter, softer and more definite about her recent work, including the Parmore poster.

GigPoster – Gigo Elmoselhi –

I was collecting bits of awesome from gigposter in prep for this weekend’s “E” episode when I found Gigo. It looks like he’s just starting (he only has eight posters) but the fact that each and every one of them is great was such a surprise and so rare, I decided to do a little mini feature on him before this weekend. Who wants to wait when I could just do it now!? Not me.

This is one of the only times I have ever liked seeing photos of people on a poster. I know I griped about it last time, but this actually works. I can’t tell you why, and I think it’s something I’ll have to study and think about. Why is he able to make it work when so many others just fail miserably? I dunno. Maybe you know? Maybe you want to tell me?

Now, I’m not saying that I’m in love with all of these. What I am saying is that he has a surprisingly developed sense of posterness that he deserves to get a little golf-clap sort of kudos from Hi There Hammy. Kudos Gigo… keep rocking that style and that name.
