You may remember Mark Brooks’ work for Santamonica from a while ago. Well he’s back at it and this time I’d say he stepped it up another level. There’s a ton of great work for the Barcelona-based apparel company over at Mark’s Behance page. Also check out his great logo section.
I just came across UK based illustrator Mike Lemanski’s work today and I’m so glad I did. A quick browse through his portfolio will leave no doubt this guy is on top of his game. I’m really enjoying his application of the 60’s playful illustration vibe without falling overboard into kitsch. Can’t wait to see more from him.

Eye Magazine has great piece on typographic posters and were kind enough to supply some very high resolution scans of these beautiful prints (click any image above for full resolution or visit the original Flickr page). There’s more info and analysis over at the original post.

More visually stimulating work by Mihaul Mihaylov. This time in poster form. I particularly enjoy the repetition of shape curve from the logo to the main graphic elements.

Pelican Parts has a fairly sizable collection of Porsche Racing posters and have kindly posted high-res scans on their site. There are several eras represented, each with their own distinct style. Really shows off how classic the Porsche logo is, it seems to work pretty much anywhere you put it. Note the various 917’s in there.
I remember seeing some similar posters up on Grain Edit a while back with a link to VP Racing where you could buy some. I always meant to pick one up, but I just checked back and pretty much all the ones I wanted are gone. Someone really needs to reprint these.
There’s an article over at the Porsche site about Eric Strenger, who designed a lot of the Porsche racing posters during these periods. Looking through his work it’s amazing how much range he had as an artist. I would never have guessed some of these were by the same person.

You may remember Paul Tebbott from this post a while back. I recently checked back in on his portfolio and was glad to see some beautiful new work up. He seems to have refined his style a bit, these compositions seem a little more restrained than the earlier stuff, if only a little. I really like what I’m seeing, his use of color is excellent. But I must admit, I kind miss type treatments like this. I’d like to see the bottom three mocked up with some type included.

Stumbled upon a handful of really great posters by Ross Gunter, a London based designer. The posters were designed for Bridging the Gap, a club night and blog in London. My favorites of this set were the 1st and 3rd because of the clear showcase of grid as well as the sheer visual stimulation in each.
