Entertainment Design Wednesday: Check out “Gig Posters” for Endless Graphic Design Inspiration

Posters for independent musicians often make for great examples of cutting edge, off the wall, distinctive examples of graphic design. If illustrative independent gig posters get your creative juices flowing, be sure to check out Gig Posters.com.

Make sure you’ve got some time to kill before you get lost in the colorful, illustrative variety of band posters in this online showcase to which hundreds of graphic designers have submitted work.

With options to browse by graphic designer, musical artists or the top picks, the sites posters offer a playful mish mash of design principles and elements like scale, balance, color, line, and rhythm with different graphic designers interpreting music in their own way.

At a graphic design college like FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, students learn the importance of conceptual thinking in poster design– whether it’s applied to movie posters, music packaging or logo design.
