Based in St Petersburg, Russia, Dima Shiryaev’s Tumblr holds a deluge of great poster work. Created for club nights, parties, exhibitions and general experiments, the designer’s style is diverse, which lends itself well to the singular, one-hit nature of posters.
Much of Dima’s work is type-focused interspersed with geometric shapes and contrasting colours. The designer plays with word and letter placement throughout to alter the pace and mood, allowing his posters to suit the event they’re advertising. In one poster manic, tightly-kerned type is used for a bass-heavy launch party, meanwhile letters are clustered together to mimic a series of art events involving neighbouring countries in another.
