Despite the fact that there have been a lot of minimalist interpretations of classic works turning up in design blogs recently these posters stand out with their clever mathematic interpretations of Shakespeare’s famous lines and the choice of a type family that is not traditionally minimalist. Nicholas Weltyk broke the “rules” enough to keep his posters fresh and different.
Great Gatsby Business Card Poster Heads of State designed this F. Scott Fitzgerald inspired poster, capable of bringing tears of joy to English teachers and designers everywhere. It is an epic layout project containing 32 calling cards of fictitious Great Gatsby characters. Each card is its own nugget of typographic excellence modeled after 1920′s social stationery.
Creating your own typeface is so.damn.hard. But extremely rewarding.
The use of geometric shapes in this poster work together with photographic images. The bright colours in the Spirograph wheels of the bike overlap to create different colours and shapes which give a fun and whimsical feeling.
