We're completely taken with these poster designs by Gabriel Jasmin

18 December 2014

It’s the overriding rule of all things trend-driven that as soon as we take a big leap forward in technology we start to look back nostalgically, triggering all manner of retro imagery, touches and techniques. At least it seems that way, and I’m sure I’m not alone in how often I’m drawn to graphic design which places hand-drawn type and recycled imagery alongside high-tech touches.

Presenting the portfolio of Montreal-based designer Gabriel Jasmin then, who uses printing techniques and media to add a human aspect to work which is otherwise crisp and super slick. Gabriel has got the balance down to a T, producing vibrant posters that merge Riso-printing, drawing and old-school type to elevate the contemporary into a category all of its own. His portfolio is diverse and substantial but we’re particularly taken with the poster designs, included below for your viewing pleasure.
