We post a fair few creatives on the site who specialise in poster design and are adept at using their graphic skills to grab your attention from the other side of a room. But often those skills don’t translate across different media – what makes for a great poster won’t necessarily work in a smaller format or across digital platforms. This seems like an obvious statement, but is often a stumbling block for young designers.
Luxembourg designer Alyar Aynetchi understands this problem very well though, and is a dab-hand at creating supergraphics for posters and video projects while maintaining a body of crisp typographic work and considered pieces of printed matter in all manner of formats. His appropriation of illustrated elements and cartoon imagery also lend a sense of vibrance to documents that could otherwise feel very hard work indeed. And since he’s still a student we’re expecting great things from him in the future.
