File this one under ‘new favorite illustrator‘.
I can’t say enough good things about the work of Mads Berg. With a vintage travel poster and art deco flavor mixed with some Picasso and Bauhaus on the side, Mads creates a wonderful posters and illustrations with simple shapes and elegant typography. I’ve never described color palettes as ‘tasty’ before, but it fits his work perfectly. Killer stuff.
The samples I pulled from his website are the tip of the iceberg (or madsberg, heh heh). Be sure to flip through his extensive portfolio, you won’t be sorry.
Great stuff, I love the style. I would totally hang some of those up at home.
He is absolutely one of my favorite illustrators around! His style is simply awesome.
Reminds me – somehow – of old russian posters updated to today’s look and feel. Absolutely great!
EXTREMELY influenced by A.M. Cassandre. Did nobody else notice this? Not a criticism, of course… Cassandre is a brilliant illustrator, and for someone else to be able to channel the same magic that made his work so fantastic… hey, I’ll take it.
