Stewart Scott-Curran creates wonderful Belle and Sebastian inspired posters

Posted by Rebecca Fulleylove,

Doing things just for fun becomes harder as you get older. No one appreciates Carol from Human Resources bringing in the worst butterfly cakes imaginable or Steve in Finance creating pie charts about everyone’s lunches. But there are some people who get personal work right like graphic designer Stewart Scott-Curran whose posters inspired by music from his past and album covers of his dad are exactly how doing things for fun should be realised.

An ongoing project, this series uses some of his favourite Belle & Sebastian songs as a base, as well as integrating Glasgow’s finest landmarks denoting the time he spent studying there. The symmetry, circular patterns and clean colours all work really well together and it’s the smaller details that give the work personality. Stewart’s contrasting Dark Side of The Moon inspired series has one poster for each track of the Pink Floyd album. Done in a similar symmetical, digital way, both sets of posters demonstrate how the personal work of graphic designers is just as interesting and exciting as their commissioned work.
