Alvin Diec: The Wooden Birds, The Earl

Work / Graphic Design

Beautifully put together posters for gigs and the like designed by Alvin Diec

My bedroom used to be covered in a lot of posters as a youngster and it’s only recently that I’ve realised how awfully designed they all were. To be fair though, my eight-year-old self didn’t really care about the type used on my Smash Hits poster of the Spice Girls – it was their cheeky attitude and sisterhood principles I was most interested in.

Since moving on from my bad choices, it’s opened me up to a whole host of talented poster makers, including Atlanta-based Alvin Diec. Featured among this graphic designer’s extensive portfolio are 2D wonders for gigs, bars, playhouses and restaurants. His style is pared back, using simple shapes and small colour palettes combined with clever type and often one strong image. It’s lovely stuff and the kind of posters I’d now be proud to hang on my wall.
